The Art Gallery of Hamilton Reference Library is named in honour of Muriel Bostwick after her generous bequest which also included a gift of fine art books from her private collection and her store, The Bookcellar.
The Muriel Bostwick Library boasts many texts, articles, journals, magazines, and letters specifically devoted to art and artists. The Library collection reflects and supports the AGH permanent collection, and includes past exhibition catalogues published by the AGH dating back to 1926.
The Library is an outstanding resource for staff, volunteers, students, and researchers. Please click here for inquiries or to make an appointment.
