The Michael and Karen Stone Family Gallery opened in the fall of 2015. This room was part of a renovation that took three special collections rooms (Trent, Flowers and Dalton) and turned them into two rooms; Stone and HOM. The Stone Family Gallery was designed to be a room to securely put on display some of the most valuable and fragile materials from the Rubenstein Library. You might notice it is a little dark-we keep the light levels low to protect the paper and other materials that might fade with too much exposure to light.
This room, located adjacent to the Mary Duke Biddle Room, and just inside the main entrance of the Perkins Library, is approximately 23 feet x 17 feet. There are 6 cases in this room of a variety of sizes and shapes. The cases are designed to showcase Rubenstein Library collection materials.
This room is open to the public during open hours. This room will rarely be available for public events, unless related to exhibitions and the room has no IT or AV equipment available for public use. The exhibition space is primarily for displaying Rubenstein collection materials.
