Cornell Alums invited to tour special exhibits at TCPL June 5

TCPL offers special behind the scenes tours of the exhibit "Cornell Off Campus" in honor of Alumni weekend.

Curator Julee Johnson leads a tour for Ithaca Rotary

Join Julee Johnson at 5:15 and 6:15 PM during Gallery Opening Night this Friday, June 5 in the Avenue of the Friends.  Johson leads fascinating tours of this exhibit celebrating Cornell's 15th Anniversary.  She explains why she chose these particular people to include in the exhibit, and provides numerous fascinating tidbits about each one.  Join a tour and find out how Laura Bryant enticed boys to learn to sing; whether Belle Sherman was the first principal of the school named in her honor;  how Everett Morse paid for his Cornell tuition and many more more.

Tours start in the Avenue of the Friends near "The Word Bird."  After 6 PM when the Library closes, entry to the exhibit will be through the BorgWarner door behind the bus shelter on Green Street.

Also on display in the Avenue of the Friends is a small exhibit commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Mu Upsilon Chapter at Cornell.
