Reading and readers are inextricably intertwined with libraries, but not always at the forefront of library research. The Library History Round Table Research Forum will explore this interconnection through presentations of papers on the history of reading and readers in libraries. The LHRT research committee has selected several historical papers for presentation at the Forum. Each researcher will present their completed work at this program, and the session will close with time for comments and questions.
