Libraries: Preserving the Past, Educating the Present
In conjunction with OLLI’s lecture series, The Library – Civilization’s Treasure House of Knowledge, OLLI members receive VIP tours of two renowned libraries: the Benson Ford Research Center at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn and the main branch of the Detroit Public Library on Woodward. We will begin with a guided tour of the Benson Ford and its special collection, which includes precious artifacts and belongings of American presidents and Henry Ford himself. After lunch at the historic Dearborn Inn, we will travel to Detroit for a guided tour of the Detroit Public Library. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1920s building is not just a library but an architectural treasure containing special works of art. The guided tours will involve light walking and some stairs (elevators available). Please notify us of physical limitations in advance so that we can accommodate any special needs or requests.
