New York Library Tour: The New York Public Library and the Morgan
November 30, 2000

Join us for a visit to two great New York libraries. We begin our day with a tour at the New York Public Library, where we will learn about its history and architecture as well as visit the newly renovated Reading Room. Lunch will be on your own at one of the many restaurants between the NYPL and the Morgan Library. At 2 pm, we meet at the Morgan Library, the Renaissance palazzo built by J.P. Morgan for his enormous collection of rare books, illuminated manuscripts, prints, and drawings. We will have a tour of the building and then a special talk on the library's Jane Austen collection--part of which was given by Alberta Burke, Goucher '28. We leave at 7:15 am and return about 8:00 pm.
The price of $95 includes transportation, entrance and docent fees, juice and muffins on the way up, and wine and cheese on the return trip. This trip is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Goucher Library and the Goucher College Alumnae/i Trips & Tours Committee. There is a limit of 30 participants.
Co-leaders: Rhoda Dorsey (410-828-6161) and Beverly Winter (410-583-2356)
