The Research Library as it looked around 1930. Some of the chairs and tables are still in use today.
The Sierra Club Library donated a collection of books to the Museum Library that will broaden our understanding and awareness of the natural world and environmental issues. This valuable collection will be used to support Museum research and educational outreach, and features rich and varied material on regional and global flora, fauna and natural environments.
The Research Library recently cataloged a collection of rare books published from the 1700s and 1800s.
