Tours of The Wagnalls Memorial

Learn about the history of The Wagnalls Memorial from its founder herself, Mabel Wagnalls Jones.  Librarian and Wagnalls historian Carol Gaal, will dress as Mabel and give tours of the building from Mabel’s perspective.  Learn about Mabel’s family, her famous friends (such as Harry Houdini and the author O’Henry), and why she wanted to gift the city of Lithopolis with the library.  You will even visit the “tower room”, which is usually off-limits to library guests.

Tours will be the second Wednesday of every month at 7pm.  They are free of charge and open to the public.

If you have a larger group that would like a private tour outside of our public tour times, please contact Sarah at smayzum@wagnalls.org or 614-837-4765 ext 126 to make arrangements.

The next tour is Wednesday September 11 at 7pm.
