Library in Residence

CCAM’s Library in Residence (located in the main lobby at 149 York Street) is a curated exhibit of books selected by members of the CCAM community, including faculty, artists, and friends. The collection reflects the ever-evolving programming and research taking place at CCAM. The Fall 2019 iteration of the Library in Residence is themed around the intersections of art and science. Visitors are encouraged to spend some time in the library area and enjoy some words. Books are to remain at CCAM.
