Subject: Folger Acquisitions Night Adopt-a-Book Catalogue
From: Folger Reading Room News
The Folger's annual benefit for the Acquisitions Program is coming up -
Thursday, March 2nd. It's an important evening, as all proceeds go
toward funding rare acquisitions for the last quarter of the fiscal year.
Some Readers have asked us to share in advance the Adopt-a-Book
catalogue, which provides descriptions of over 100 rare books,
manuscripts, and works of art acquired over the last 12 months that will
be on display. This year we are trying something new: mounting an
electronic copy of the catalogue on the Folger website.
I want to take this opportunity to direct you to the Acquisitions Night
webpage, where you can learn more about this event and print or view the
catalogue online. Instructions are also provided for those who wish to
purchase tickets or adopt items by email. Partial item adoptions and
adoptions by groups are welcome.
Have a browse. Thanks very much.
