Have a little fun with Archives and Special Collections for the 2022-2023 season of First Fridays, a series of intellectually stimulating talks from the archives. This year we investigate materials in the archives that are strictly recreational.

Presentations begin at noon. Light refreshments and appetizers will be available. ASL interpreters will be present for all First Fridays events. Presentations resume in person this year, with the option to stream via Zoom. Please make a reservation if you plan to attend in person or online.
