Temporary Service Adjustments at OCAC Library

Due to staffing limitations over the summer, OCAC Library collections will not be available to fulfill holds placed by general WCCLS cardholders. If you need access to particular titles, consider using our interlibrary loan service to make the request, and we’ll try to get those books from other libraries across the country.

  • The OCAC Library will not serve as a holds pickup location over the summer, or a place to return WCCLS library materials.

In the meantime, patrons are still welcome to visit the library during open hours, to browse materials in the library. However, OCAC cannot loan out materials until regular service resumes.

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to resuming our usual service levels for the public in the fall.

** Donations are not be accepted at this time **

The OCAC Library is an exceptional resource for students of art and craft. Our library houses more than 12,000 volumes, 90 journal subscriptions, and is a member of the Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS). Therefore, we have access not only to our on-site collection, but to over one million items across the county and with the aid of Interlibrary Loan (ILL), we are able to borrow from and lend to libraries across the country. We also have a collection of Rare Books, Ephemera, Artist Pamplets, and an extensive slide library. Complementing our print collection, we subscribe to a number of databases, and link to pertinent websites.
