The H.N. Pullar Library at the Textile Museum of Canada offers a unique reference collection of resources dealing with textiles and textile traditions from around the world. The Library features open stacks of over 4,500 books, 20 journal titles, subject files and a small collection of DVDs and videos for reference purposes. The library collection is available to the public for research and our catalogue is searchable online from anywhere in the world, made possible with the support of the William R. and Shirley Beatty Charitable Foundation. The facility is staffed by a group of knowledgeable volunteers who can assist in any reference requests during visiting hours or by e-mail.
