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.
