Are you looking for rideshare options or have space to share? Take a look at our Carpool and Rideshare Sign-Up! For those arriving on Thursday evening, we will also organize a local Group Dinner, location TBD.

For those planning to travel up the night before, we were not able to secure a block of rooms with hotels in the vicinity, however, many hotels in Wilmington and near Winterthur do have accommodations available. There will also be a carpool and ride-sharing document posted soon for those who may arrive by train and want to arrange group travel from Wilmington to Winterthur.

The Winterthur is located in scenic Brandywine Valley, about 6 miles northwest of Wilmington, DE. The region is also home to several other libraries and museums, including Longwood Gardens, the Hagley Museum and Library, and the Delaware Art Museum.

Many thanks to Kathy Woodrell (Library of Congress) for her work in organizing these tours with Ellen Hughes (Winterthur Tours Coordinator), and thanks to Emily Guthrie (Library Director) for hosting our business meeting.
