Access to the Fine Books Collection

Because of the many unique and fragile resources in the Fine Books collection, no items circulate outside the Library. Most of the titles are listed in the Dallas Public Library’s online catalog, but staff can assist with specialized searches. An appointment is strongly suggested to view volumes in the collection. A limited number of staff are able to pull volumes from Fine Books, and access without an appointment may not be possible given staffing constraints.

If you have questions about the collection or wish to make an appointment to view Fine Books materials, please call 214-670-1435 and ask to speak to either the division manager or assistant manager.
