The Library Company Visits Temple University Libraries

On October 22 a group of Library Company members traveled north of Center City to partake in an intimate tour of some very special collections housed within Temple University Libraries. The pictures were taken in the Urban Archive department with Brenda Galloway-Wright, Associate Archivist. The department was established in 1967 to document the social, economic and physical development of the Philadelphia metropolitan area from the mid-19th century to the present with books, manuscripts, and photographs. Additional pictures show a white glove tour of the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection, led by Diane Turner, the curator of the collection.
