If it is raining and we are unable to hold Fridays at Five outside in the Library Yard, the lecture will take place indoors in the Library's lower level program room. All those wishing to attend will enter through the Library's east gate located on Main Street. There will be no entry through the Library. 

There will be limited space indoors. Attendance for this event will be capped at 150 attendees. Please note: As always attendance at Fridays at Five is First Come, First Seated. Therefore possession of a Series Pass, Press Pass, or Comp Pass will NOT guarantee admission to Fridays at Five. Admission is only guaranteed to the first 150 individuals through the gate.
