Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library

Grand Opening

In May 2015, the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library closed to students and the public.

Today, after a 16-month renovation, it reopens.

When you’re updating something as innately spectacular as the Beinecke, a prime measure of success is how unchanged things feel when you’re done. Does its silvery outer geometry, newly cleaned and sealed, still beckon and pique? Does its golden inner glow, passed through stone and glass, still answer and relieve?
