(Repeats at 2 p.m.)
Join us for a tour of the oldest library on the west coast! The Mechanics’ Institute was established in 1854 as a library and vocational school for mechanics, engineers, and manual laborers. Today it continues its service to the community as a comprehensive library, a cultural center, and a world renowned chess club. Tour will focus on the Institute’s history, the unique architectural features of our landmark building, and a comprehensive review of the Institute’s collections, services, and activities.
