The open house will showcase a collection of rare and unique volumes donated by Robert Harvey, professor emeritus of landscape architecture. Most of the volumes, which cover ag, gardening and landscape design topics, date back to the 19th century; the oldest is from 1724. Harvey and library conservator Melissa Tedone will be available for questions. A selection of books also will be on display.
