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 February 2018, the CAFTCAD Library will be open between 10am to 5pm on Mondays.  Access on other days and times by appointment.  Click on Location at the bottom of the page for address and email any questions to
