After fifteen years of planning, five years of design work with architects, and four million dollars procured, the FIT Library unit of Special Collections is now a state-of-the-art facility to house its more than 5000 linear feet of holdings (dated 1590-current day). Come and spend an hour with Associate Professor and Head of Special Collections Karen Trivette, and her unit personnel, who will give you an overview of the project, guide you through the space, share with you highlights of the collections, answer questions about the extreme before and after, and the metamorphosis in-between. After the tour, take some time to visit the Museum at FIT, which has installed at least two exhibitions for your perusing pleasure.

Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 12:30 PM to travel together by subway. Tour participants are required to buy a loaded Metro Card in advance of the tour, so that the tour can remain on schedule. Round-trip travel will cost $5.50 cash.

Maximum Participants: 39
Administrative Fee: $10
