Library Under Construction

The Cary Graphic Arts Collection will be closed until at least October 25th, 2021 as our library moves to a temporary location to accommodate the construction of the Student Hall for Exploration and Development. During this time, we are suspending research visits, in-person classes, reproduction requests, exhibition loans, and in-person tours.

Cary staff will do their best to answer reference questions and other queries received via email within three business days.
