Learn about the history of The Wagnalls Memorial from its founder herself, Mabel Wagnalls Jones. Librarian and Wagnalls' historia Carol Gaal, will dress as Mabel and give tours of the building from Mabel's perspective. Learn about Mabel's family, her famous friends (such as Harry Houdini and the author O'Henry), and why she wanted to gift the city of Lithopolis with the Library. You will even visit the "tower room", which is usually off-limits to library guests.
Tours will be the second Wednesday of every month at 7 pm. They are free of charge and open to the public.
