Staff will be on hand with carefully selected materials from Hagley’s vast historical research collections related to the history of enterprise and technology. The event will include behind-the-scenes tours led by library staff.

Behind-the-scenes tours will give visitors a rare look at storage areas, where we keep millions of photographs as well as thousands of books and other historical publications. In addition, participants can see our conservation area, where library conservators will demonstrate some of their current work in protecting Hagley’s historical documents.
