Harvard undergrads: Be among the first to get a special, librarian-led tour of our newly-renovated Houghton Library.

Registration is limited to 15 students – so claim your spot soon!

Houghton Library sits between Lamont and Widener in the Yard. It’s a treasure trove of rare books and manuscripts, interesting objects, contemporary writers’ papers, a performing arts archive called the Theatre Collection, and much, much more.

Join us to learn how you can use Houghton for research, for inspiration – or just for fun. We’ll show you around our current exhibit on children’s literature and give you a peek into special spaces, like the Emily Dickinson Room.

Great undergraduate course projects and prize-winning theses originate in Houghton every semester. Maybe yours will, too!
