Since most of the books in the Brown Collection are first editions and signed by the author, they are rare and valuable. Therefore, the room cannot be left open. The collection is considered part of Special Collections, so if you would like to view any books in the room, you will need to make an appointment with a librarian. If there is a book in the Brown Collection that you would like to read, you’ll need to order it through E-ZBorrow or get it from the public library. Books ordered through E-ZBorrow should arrive here in 2-5 business days!
