Pop-Up Books through the Ages exhibition on view at Newberry Library in Chicago

Celebrate Libraries® traveled to Chicago on June 15 for a private tour of Pop-Up Books through the Ages at Newberry Library. The exhibition’s curator, Dr. Suzanne Karr Schmidt, explained in fascinating detail the centuries-long development of engineered moveable paper objects leading to the advent of pop-up books.

The handsome installation was well-attended and we only wish we had one more day to spend at The Newberry. Free and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, the exhibition closes on Saturday, July 15, 2023.

A video presentation inspired by our visit will be coming in 2023.
