The history of Peabody Library is connected in interesting ways both with the history of Peabody College and with the larger history of libraries and library education in the United States. To help mark Peabody Library's centennial, this talk by Peabody librarian David Golann will highlight photos and other artifacts that illuminate the history of the library and the library school that called it home for many years. Light refreshments will be provided.
