In 2018, the Library Company of Philadelphia launched our seminar series to offer community members an opportunity to explore the rich historical records of our collections. More than an exhibition of treasures, each seminar provides participants with access to carefully-curated materials such as historical documents, books, and prints, together with conversation guided by experts in a learning experience that promotes discovery, discussion, and reinterpretation.
In Fall 2019, we will offer our seminars in two formats.
All seminars will unfold over three sessions with interactive presentations and curated access to collection items in the Library Company reading room.
Traditional seminars include one reception in the Logan room. Tuition is $250 for the general public and $200 for shareholders.
Premium seminars include dinner after each session (three total) in the Logan Room. Tuition is $500 for the general public and $350 for shareholders.
To promote accessibility, need-based scholarships will be made available. Students, artists, and first-time participants, in particular, are encouraged to inquire with the program director, Will Fenton.
