The main entrance to the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center is now open. Van Pelt Library and the Fisher Fine Arts Library are currently open to Penn Card holders, Penn affiliates, and certain visitors. See our Service Alerts for details.

This fund was established by Beatrice W.B. Garvan, G'65, PAR'76, PAR'77 to support the mission of the Penn Libraries' Special Collections, with a specific focus on the publications and programs of the Schoenberg Center for Electronic Text and Image.

Long a supporter of the Library, Mrs. Garvan is a former member of the Penn Libraries Board of Advisors. She is Curator Emeritus of American Decorative Arts at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
