Calling all bibliophiles!  Take a peek at some of the rare, old and interesting finds among the 5,000 books collected by the Van Rensselaers of Cherry Hill with rare books expert Philip Eppard and Executive Director Deborah Emmons-Andarawis.

The Van Rensselaer library collection at Cherry Hill includes books inherited and collected by the Van Rensselaers who lived at the house from 1787 to 1963.  Books spans the 16th through the 20th century and demonstrate the changing patterns and tastes in literature consumption, production, and marketing.  Come explore!

After the tour, join us for some fitting fall refreshments of local cider and doughnuts.
