The Library houses 25,000 volumes of books and periodicals. Books in our collection include genealogies, as well as local, county and state histories for Pennsylvania and surrounding states (including New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and New York.) Many of our county histories include every-name indexes, compiled by volunteers. Because our library supports the work of our museum, we also have a large collection of decorative arts books on furniture, toys, silver, clocks, etc. that you are welcome to consult.
