ABOUT THE EVENT John Lithgow is an actor, an author, a visual artist. He has an international reputation in the arts and humanities and familial ties to our local community. The Jones Library is delighted that An Evening With John Lithgow will give him a chance to share his support of libraries, the humanities, and democracy in general and, specifically, to encourage support of the Library’s Capital Campaign to renovate and expand its Amity Street building.
JONES LIBRARY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN A project of the Friends of the Jones Libraries, the Jones Library Capital Campaign (JLCC) is raising funds to renovate and expand the historic Jones Library building in Amherst, MA. When complete, the building project will make the Jones Library one of the most climate-friendly buildings in Amherst, restoring most of the original 1928 building, expanding programming space to meet current and emerging needs, while improving the layout to be fully accessible for people with disabilities and more functional for everyone.
*Proceeds from this event are in support of the Jones Library's National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant (CHA-292057) and will be used to match and to be expended for the approved purposes of this award.
