Join HDC for a tour of Columbia’s Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library and a unique peek at treasures in the Avery Classics collection of rare books.

Designed by the legendary architecture firm McKim, Mead, and White, Avery Hall was completed in 1912 and for the last 100 years has been home to one of the most comprehensive architecture and fine arts library collections in the world. Andrew Dolkart, Director of the Historic Preservation Program and Carolyn Yerkes, Curator of Avery Classics, will provide a brief tour of the library, followed by a look at some rarely seen and uniquely New York treasures from the library’s impressive collection of drawings, books and ephemera.

$35 for Friends of HDC, students and seniors, $45 for general public
