Celebrating Shakespeare’s Birthday at the Folger (photos)

Hundreds came out to celebrate the 449th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., under sunny skies on April 21. There were plenty of activities for young and old alike, including jugglers, jesters, demonstrations, workshops and arts and crafts. It was also the one day of the year when the Folger reading rooms are open to all.
