- a rare opportunity to view a tenth-century Carolingian manuscript and a stunning fifteenth-century illuminated book of hours;
- advance viewing of ten medieval manuscript facsimiles on loan from the PIMS.
Space is limited. Please register soon if you wish to join us. A tax receipt of $23 will be issued. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the expansion and rejuvenation of our library.
