Downton Abbey Open House A Success

Visitors at Downton Abbey open house

Thank you to everyone who attended "A Downton Afternoon" on Wednesday, February 19.  We had a record turn-out of 70 visitors, including faculty, staff, students, Friends of the Library, and others. Dr. Margot Olson of Technology and Enviornmental Design brought her interior design students to examine the room's architectural features (pictured above).  Everyone enjoyed taking the Downton Abbey book quiz from the Rhinehart Rare Book Collection on British History and discussing the show.  Throughout the afternoon we enjoyed hearing visitors say, "This is cool!" and "This is exciting!" Indeed, a rare book library can be exciting!

Stay tuned for future Special Collections events.
