Public tours of Houghton Library are offered Fridays at 2 pm during the academic year. Due to our upcoming building renovation, the last tour of 2019 will take place on Friday, May 17.

Attendees receive a general introduction to the library, followed by a tour of the Emily Dickinson, Amy Lowell, and John Keats rooms, as well as the suite devoted to the Donald & Mary Hyde Collection of Dr. Samuel Johnson.

Those wishing to take the tour should meet in the Houghton Library lobby.

Reservations are not required.
