On Wednesday, February 19, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Special Collections  in Belk Library and Information Commons will be hosting “A Downton Afternoon,” a Downton Abbey-themed open house in the Rhinehart Rare Books and Special Collections Room on the 4th Floor.
In the hit BBC and PBS series Downton Abbey, the library is a common backdrop, yet few people know that we have a similar library in Belk Library. The Rhinehart Rare Books and Special Collections Room was designed in the style of an English country library.
Attendees will have a chance to see the Rhinehart Room and its British studies rare book collection , and enjoy a Downton Abbey-themed afternoon. All are invited. Costumes are optional.
