ABOUT | CPAC is now offering our library as a benefit for members. With over 500 books, the library contains exhibition catalogs, artist books, reference manuals, vintage copies of Aperture magazine and more. Read about the artwork of Alfred Steiglitz, Sharon Harper, and James Balog, study the history of War in Photography, or gain inspiration from a landscape photography book.
Browse the collection, search by author or subject, and check book availability through Librarika. This website allows us to upload books in our collection and track them once they’re checked out. Once you (the borrower) log in, view the collection by clicking “catalog items” under the “catalogs” tab.
Your membership with CPAC automatically grants you access to Librarika. You can use the email address we have linked to your CPAC membership to sign in and create a password. Don’t want to check out a book?
Please note: Due to COVID-19 and the Center’s new safety procedures, books are currently not being loaned out. We hope to open the library again soon.
