The Art Library

Museum  collection of artifacts

The Art Library at the Douglas Family Art Centre was born from the generous donations of a number of local artists and art appreciators.  All books in the collection are related to the arts in some way, be it painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, photography, etc.  

Muse members are able to take the books out on loan for a period of three weeks, while non-members may use the books on site at the Art Centre.  Looking for a book on a specific topic?  We’d be happy to search our records to let you know what we have available!

We are always looking to add to our collection!  If you have art-focused books or magazines that you are willing to donate, we would love to here from you.

For donation and research inquiries, please contact:

Did you know?

The Burley Mine was a single shaft gold mine that was sunk into a very small rock outcrop on the lake.  To stabilize the entrance the owners built cribbing around the rock.  The small, perfectly square island remains there to this day.
