All Families Weekend!

This coming weekend, September 18-20, 2015, is All Families Weekend at Vassar.  What better time to show off the Library and all its architectural details to family and friends?

Here a few highlights:

The Library has a rich architectural history.  The Main Library was built in 1905 and has been expanded and updated several times over the past 110 years.  Most of the original architectural details are still present today — along with some breathtaking newer ones!  Bring your family and friends to the Library this weekend and enjoy this beautiful, historic building as well as the contents within!
