Enjoy the delights of December with a library trip.  We are going to the Nelson-Atkins Museum then returning through the Plaza to see the lights.

At 5:30 we’ll gather for Happy Hour in the Bloch Lobby for hor d’oeuvres, which is included in the trip fee. (There is a cash bar also available.) We’ll leave from the library at 2:30 p.m. and will return to the library by 7:30 p.m. Payment is due at the time of registration. Please include your fee for the special exhibit if you plan on attending.  The tour size is limited and reservations are required.  Tour fee: $20.00.
