There are so many things to see and do in the Allison Library, especially in regards to our rare book collections. 

Every few months, you can find a new display about a handful of our rare books in the main foyer of the library. A display on Hannah More's Writings is currently sitting in this spot for you to enjoy.

The Allison Library also hosts hour-long rare book talks with a time for questions and answers on one of our featured books. In 2018, Dr. J.I. Packer spoke on John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Jenny-Lyn de Klerk spoke on John Owen's Eshcol. Stay tuned for details about upcoming book talks.

In 2018, the Allison Library welcomed scholars, students, pastors, and community members to a conference on the Puritans called, "Uncommon Devotion: Reflections on Puritan Texts." Click here to see a photo album of highlights. 

If you have questions or comments about these displays and events, please email Jenny-Lyn at [email protected].
