Museum Library – Used Book Sale, March 3-6!

Museum basement corridor lined up with books ready to sell!

It’s book sale time again! With its Used Book Sale, the Museum’s George Peckham Miller Art Research Library is thrilled to provide the community with the opportunity to purchase those materials that are either duplicative or outside of the library’s collecting area. And, of course, all the proceeds benefit the library’s book acquisition fund.

This is an exciting time of year for the library staff as it draws together two years (the last used book sale was in 2009) of cataloguing, organizing, and streamlining the library collection.

Discover bound treasures, used books on art and art history-related subjects from the Museum’s George Peckham Miller Art Research Library, as well as select sale gifts and home and fashion accessories from the Museum Store.

Whether you are on the lookout for books on the paintings of Picasso, the sculpture of Lachaise, or the drawings of O’Keeffe, we have books on your favorites.  And don’t pass up the catalogue on the Louvre—we sell it far cheaper than a round-trip flight to Paris!
