Want to relax and enjoy some holiday spirit with our beautiful Tower Hall and its Christmas past? Join Librarian and Archivist Heidi Johnson for a candlelight tour of Tower Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 14. Holiday stories, music, and a special present from the past are planned.
The tour will start outside the Admissions main office on the first floor with battery-operated taper candles you will carry throughout all four floors of darkened Tower Hall.
Please note: space will be limited to the first 20 people who register for each tour in order for a safe experience.
