The staff of the William Morris Hunt Memorial Library cordially invites you to our 42nd exhibition.

BOOKPLATES  Their Stories

December 6th, 2018 through January 22nd, 2019
Please join us for the opening reception December 6th, 5 - 7 pm.

What do bookplates have to say about the Museums’ founders and donors - their commitment to learning and books - and their relationships not only to the Museum and library, but also to each other? See this fascinating exhibition of bookplates, the books that are home to them, and trace their routes through history into present day. Exhibition curated by Museum book conservator Marie Oedel.
