Michael Victor II Art Library
The Michael Victor II Art Library provides support services for the Springfield Art Association’s classes, faculty and staff; loans out items to the public; and lends items to library patrons. Established in 1964 by Devera and Benjamin Victor in memory of their son, Michael, the library has grown from one small room to its current location housing over 4,000 volumes on art and related topics. The library adopted the Dewey Decimal System in 1975, moved into its current location in 1979, and hired a part-time librarian in 1980. In 2003 the Michael Victor II Art Library officially went online and upgraded its partnership in the Rolling Prairie Library System.
The Michael Victor II Art Library contains thousands of wonderful books, videos and DVD’s on art-related topics. We have an area of books especially geared toward children, as well as many resources for those learning to create art themselves. In addition to our circulating items we subscribe to 20 art periodicals plus house a collection of rare, non-circulating volumes.
