Members Only Tour of the Redwood Library Mar 2018

The Members Only Tour of The Redwood Library was wonderful.  We learned so much about the history of the library and Athaeneum. The director’s tour of the present exhibit of Modernisim and the French Salon was delightful.  Such enthusiasm.  Here’s to the French EBay and all the treasures procured from it.   Many thanks to Jim Buttrick for arranging the event.
