Join The Library Company for a virtual collection review on Tuesday, September 20th!

A working library requires numerous pieces of furniture to operate and serve its readers. The Library Company acquired many of these items over its long history, from the practical to the functional to cutting-edge technical innovations. Curator of Art and Artifacts and Visual Materials Cataloger Linda Kimiko August will share highlights from the Library Company’s collection, including a set of Windsor chairs made by Joseph Henzey in 1792; a clock made by John Child to ring at the Library Company’s closing time at sundown; and the then-innovative card catalog introduced in 1876.
