caftcad resource library


The CAFTCAD Resource Library is an invaluable resource open to all members. Want to learn about the Amish? Leather jackets? The Kennedys? With over 1500 book titles spanning thousands of years of history and 500 magazines and periodicals dating from the 1920s to present day, our library is the ideal place to research a specific era, obtain general costume history knowledge or simply be inspired. All library materials have been donated by generous individuals in the costume design community and are for reference purposes only. A photocopier/scanner is available for use.

The library is free to all CAFTCAD members.

Non-members may access the library by a pay-what-you can donation.

Starting from early 2019, CAFTCAD will begin a development project to rehouse the CAFTCAD library in a new facility. If you would like to know more or how to get involved contact
