A Gentle Renovation
If you walked by the JCB's beautiful historic facade recently, you will have noticed that we have been renovating the west entrance to the building. This renovation has enhanced the front porch to accommodate a walkway and added automatic doors for full accessibility. The refurbished wooden doors now stand inside glass doors, illuminated when the building is closed, and when the library is open allowing a view through to the interior.
We are also refreshing exhibition spaces. The new exhibit 1846: Inventing Americana at the John Carter Brown Library is opening on site and online, and in the historic MacMillan Reading Room we will be sharing a history of JCB exhibits and publications.
