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. Visitors are encouraged to spend some time in the library area and enjoy some words. Books are to remain at CCAM.
