The UCLA Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies organizes academic programs, bringing together scholars with the goal of encouraging research from as early as the time of Lope de Vega and William Shakespeare to the defeat of Napoléon and the death of Lord Byron. The Center also administers the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, located on a historic 1920s property in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles. The Clark serves as the research laboratory for fellows working either in early modern studies or the fin-de-siècle world of Oscar Wilde. The Center also offers a range of cultural programs, including chamber music concerts, theatrical performances, and lectures.
We are looking for volunteers to assist at the Clark Library’s Grand Reopening Celebration. After being closed since April 2015 for a seismic retrofit and book storage expansion project, the Clark Library will be formally reopened to the public. With guided tours of the library’s new and refurbished spaces, a comprehensive exhibit of the building’s history, and fun activities for the entire family on the grounds, we plan for an exciting 1920s-themed event to honor the building’s history. Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and clean-up of the event, assist with guest check-in, help run the activities and games, and help people find their way around the 5 acre property.
Volunteers needed from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Event runs from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
