The Central Library is hosting an exhibit of Shakespeare’s First Folio, from March 21-April 17. Considered one of the world’s most treasured books, the 1623 folio contains the first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays, published seven years after his death. The First Folio contains 36 plays, 18 of which would otherwise have been lost, including “Macbeth,” “Julius Caesar,” “Twelfth Night,” “The Tempest,” “Antony and Cleopatra,” “The Comedy of Errors” and “As You Like It.” The First Folio will be on display during regular library hours in the Level 8 Gallery. Visitors are encouraged to reserve a free ticket in advance; timed admission runs every 30 minutes. A limited number of drop-in tickets will be available at the library each day.
