Thanks to the generosity of the Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Charitable Trust and The Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Charitable Foundation, Inc., our Rare Book Reading Room is being named in honor of Drs. Barry and Bobbi Coller. The Drs. Coller are both active users and supporters of our historical collections and long term friends to the Rare Book Room.

The gift will be used to upgrade the care of our rare book collections in the Reading Room and support the development of the Center for History of Medicine and Public Health. Our thanks go to the LeFrak family for their support.
