The Elling Eide Center

Private Tour & Lunch

March 20, 2018

OLLI's annual southwestern Florida special event features The Elling Eide Center, a new private research library and nature preserve dedicated to the study of classical Chinese literature and art. Bequeathed by Sarasota resident Elling Eide, the 72-acre waterfront preserve brings together Old Florida and new modern architecture.

The New York Times wrote about the center last year, calling it "a treasure chest of Chinese literature." Read the full article here.

Sarasota architect Guy Peterson, FAIA, designed the Center’s research library, which shares the landscape with a rich assortment of native and exotic plants. The Center’s collection contains comprehensive library holdings and special collections of rare books, manuscripts and artwork that represent a significant new resource for Asian Studies scholars.
