Huntington Library Visitors

On April 27 the Library Company hosted a group of Trustees and friends of the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. This was a stop on the group’s marathon eight-day trip to libraries and museums in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Our visitors heard about the history of the Library Company from Director John Van Horne, saw some of our greatest treasures up close as described by Librarian James Green, and had a tour of our exhibition “Philadelphia on Stone” with curator Erika Piola. Then the group got behind the scenes with visits to the Print Department, the McLean Conservation Department, and the rare book stacks. We have it on good authority that the Library Company was one of the highlights of their trip east.
