In 2018, the Library Company of Philadelphia launched its LCP Seminars to offer our community members a unique opportunity to explore rich historical records from our collections. More than an exhibition of treasures, each seminar provides participants hands-on access to primary materials such as historical documents, books, and prints, together with conversation guided by experts in an intensive experience that promotes discovery, discussion, and learning. In 2019, we will offer our seminars in two formats.
Our premium seminars unfold over four two-hour sessions. Each session features an interactive presentation of historical materials in our reading room, followed by dinner in the charming Logan Room. Tuition is $750 for LCP shareholders and $1,000 for the general public, which includes a one-year Library Company Shareholder membership.
Our one-time seminars are contained in a single, three-hour session that includes an extended presentation of historical materials in our reading room and dinner in our Logan Room. Tuition is $200 for LCP shareholders and $250 for the general public.
To ensure an intimate learning experience, space will be limited to 20 participants on a first-come, first serve basis.
