Talks & Presentations

As a part of our events schedule, the library offers a series of educational presentations on the Bertelli Terrace, mainly during the fall and winter months. These events are meant to educate audiences on a range of topics ranging from aspects of local Oaxacan history to niche interests presented by enthusiastic speakers. Tickets go on sale 30 days prior to an event.

Our terrace has limited capacity and events fill up fast so reserve tickets for any events as early as possible. Please only register for events that you plan to attend. You must check-in at the event at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the event. Unclaimed seats will be offered to those on the waiting list 5 minutes prior to the start time. 

 

Guests are welcome to be added to the waiting list, in person at the door, 30 minutes before the event for sold out events. This first come, first served list will offer any unclaimed spots for the presentations.
