Join us for a tour of The Grolier Club. Founded in 1884, the Grolier Club is America's oldest and largest society for bibliophiles and is a unique library, museum and clubhouse. It is headquartered in a 1917 Georgian Revival building designed by club member and noted architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. In the public galleries and members-only spaces, highlights include a Dutch Colonial-style tavern and a soaring Neoclassical research library with 100,000 volumes that shed light on how the printed word and image have disseminated information for millennia. The library staff will display rare archival material for the tour. Keen-eyed visitors will spot a blowfish and a secret stairway.

This is an in-person event limited to 20 people. Registration is non-transferable. Please note that you MUST reserve a ticket in advance online in order to attend this event. 

In the occasion that the event is sold out, we highly recommend joining the waitlist. An ART staff member will reach out to you if a spot becomes available. Unless you've been given permission, please do not show up at the event without registering.
