Currier Museum of Art Passes
Storied Books: A Library and Archives Focus Exhibition
February 6, 2017 - July 7, 2017
This Currier Library and Archives exhibition showcases volumes from our rare book collection. Explore Bibles adorned with locks of hair, seaweed pressed between poetry, photographs, news clippings and notes tucked amidst pages, and personal notations, such as underlines, arrows and highlights. These books tell us about their owners, giving us a more complex understanding of their stories and their alterations.

Thanks to an initiative from the New Hampshire Astronomical Society (http://nhastro.com/ltp.php) and funding from the Trustees of Brown Memorial Library we can now offer the loan of an Orion StarBlast telescope.
Ask about borrowing the telescope at the circulation desk. The telescope circulates for one week and we will ask you to sign a Telescope Borrowing Agreement.
