Join the Rare Book & Manuscript Library as it celebrates the acquisition of the Tennyson Library of Crochet. There will be an exhibit on the first floor of the Main Library and in the Marshall Gallery, in addition to a variety of great events.

Named the Tennyson Library of Crochet for Witte’s great-grandmother Flora Emily Tennyson, the collection documents the history and practice of the craft through journals, patterns, samples, and manuals. The Tennyson Library of Crochet consists of over 7,000 items in all, ranging in date from 1843 to the present.
