The library invites you to view a mineral exhibit sponsored by the Philadelphia Mineralogical Society. The specimens are from the collection of George Makovitz, a long-time member. Information about the Society can be found at its website:


The purpose of the Society is to foster the study and appreciation of minerals by providing for the closer association of students, serious amateurs, professionals and others interested in mineralogy and related sciences.

The Society holds monthly meetings with informative speakers, organizes trips to museums and educational institutions displaying minerals and sponsors a large annual mineral, gem and fossil show.
