Adopt a Book

The Kelsey Museum has established a fund to support the acquisition of books for our library. Housed on the second floor, the library contains approximately 10,000 books on the ancient world. Since the Museum has a modest budget for purchasing new books, we are asking our Associates and supporters to help “adopt” a book for the Kelsey. Below is a wish list compiled by the curators. You can select a specific book or simply send a check for general aquisitions. Please make your check payable to the Kelsey Museum, and send it to the attention of Michelle Biggs. Thank you for your generous support!
