Scheide Library Showcase
Join the Student Friends of the Princeton University Library for its first in-person event since December 2019, a showcase of highlights from the Scheide Library led by Eric White, Scheide Librarian & Assistant University Librarian for Special Collections, Rare Books & Manuscripts.
The Scheide Library is one of the foremost collections of rare books in the entire world. Housed in Firestone Library on C Floor, this one-of-a-kind library belonged to William H. Scheide, a 1936 Princeton alumnus who left an extraordinary collection of more than 2,500 rare printed books and manuscripts (valued at more than $300 million) to Princeton, the largest gift in the University’s history.
Due to limited capacity, this event will only be open to Student Friends of Princeton University Library and prospective members. Registration will be required.
A late lunch at a local Princeton restaurant following the showcase is included. Location TBD.
