Adult Education Instructors & Students
Library staff places on reserve all materials listed as required texts for the Garden's Adult Education classes. If you are an instructor and would like to place additional texts on reserve for your students, please email the library.
Items from our collections can be placed on reserve at the library desk for 24 hours. Items dated prior to 1850 cannot be held at the desk, but researchers hoping to use these collections should email the library prior to visiting so that staff can review and prepare requested materials.
