All are welcome to an introductory tour of the Beinecke Library, its mission, history, architecture, collections, and services. A member of the Beinecke Library staff generally leads the Saturday introductory tour. Reservations are not required.
Note: there will be no tour on Saturday, January 12, as the library will be closed due to nearby construction, or on Saturday, September 7, 2019, as the library will be closed to all but current Yale students on that day for the annual student open house.
A reminder the Beinecke Library’s ground floor and mezzanine public exhibition areas are always free and open to all, seven days a week. Please visit the library’s website at beinecke.library.yale.edu for more information on hours and exhibitions and to explore the library online.
