Since the library’s collection has been developed around the Museum’s collection of art objects, it is the primary place to come to learn more about something you found in the Museum that interests you. Just ask the librarian on duty what your interests are, and we will be glad to help you get started on your search. The library welcomes visitors of all ages and levels of interest, from a parent looking for a child’s book on Impressionism, a college student researching one of our Antioch mosaics, or a visitor wanting to learn more about Mary Cassatt. There are over 53,000 books in our collection, all devoted to art, which are in our on-line catalog and all are available for browsing. The library is free and open to the public, and offers our resources to everyone, not just the Museum staff. Our new fall hours started after Labor Day and we will now be open on Saturdays during the Museum’s open hours for the remainder of the school year.
