    Please join Phillips library director, Sid Berger, and librarian, Barbara Kampas, for a special evening at the Peabody Essex Museum's Phillips Library. Explorers are invited for an exclusive tour of the Library and its gracious Plummer Hall, which (reputedly) contains the first period rooms in any U.S. museum! Our knowledgeable hosts will share little seen items including some of the library's recent acquisitions from China and other pieces that emphasize the depth of the Essex-Asian connection. As the research and documentation division of the Peabody Essex Museum, The Phillips Library is internationally renowned as a primary resource for maritime history, genealogic research, New England history as well as American Decorative Arts, and of course, Asian art and culture. The Phillips Library is the repository of the best-documented city/county in the U.S. Be sure to take part in this exclusive evening of discovery with our insightful hosts.
