It is my pleasure to introduce you to the inaugural issue of The Newberry Magazine. Highlighting our 125th anniversary, the following pages will bring you inside the Newberry and give you an intimate look at the past year, from preparations for two major exhibitions to the publishing of our new volume, The Newberry 125, Stories of Our Collection.
In the center, you will find our 2011-12 Annual Report, including financial statements, program summaries, and other important information about the past year. Highlights in this section include our “Conversations at the Newberry” series, the installation of compact shelving, and an update on our campaign.
We will produce The Newberry Magazine twice a year. The winter issue will include an annual report, and the summer edition will feature core Newberry initiatives as themes, such as our fellowship programs, collection projects, and our campaign. Every issue will inform you about upcoming programs and special events.
We hope you find our new magazine engaging and informative, and we welcome your feedback. Meanwhile, please enjoy your armchair journey through the Newberry as it prepared for and celebrated its 125th year.
David Spadafora, President and Librarian
