Behind the Scenes Tour of the Clements Library
Join us for a tour to learn more about the Clements Library and its collections. Tours begin with a presentation about our new space and an opportunity to view the current exhibit, “Over There” with the American Expeditionary Forces in France During the Great War. This exhibit, featuring collections preserved at the Clements, highlights the first-hand accounts of American soldiers serving in the Great War in 1917-18. Through their handwritten letters, death reports, postcards, photographs, and objects, glimpse the day-to-day lives, longings, and horrific realities of war they experienced while fighting “Over There” on the Western Front. Parking and entrance information: Guests can enter through the North vestibule (glass entrance) which faces Hatcher and is wheelchair accessible. Individuals will need to sign in as they enter the building. Parking may be challenging but look for on-street parking either on Tappan or S. State Street (e-metered) or the S. Forest parking structure.
