Free Fun Friday

Presented by the Highland Street Foundation


We are pleased to once again open the Athenæum’s first floor for Free Fun Friday, supported by the Highland Street Foundation. The day's free activities for children and adults will include quiet reading spaces, programs that highlight the Athenæum's history and collections, and stories and crafts for our youngest visitors.
