A tour behind the scenes of the famous Mitchell Library. The Mitchell Library opened to the public in 1911 and has grown ever since. With over a million items it is a huge source of information and inspiration! We only have a selection of our material out on open access and this tour will include our stacks area and a brief history of the building. 

Places are limited. The tour involves stairs and walking so may not be suitable for those with certain mobility issues.
