Giving to the Kohler Art Library

The Kohler Art Library gratefully welcomes monetary donations and gifts-in-kind (books).  From the beginning, the library has benefited in substantial ways from the generous support of its donors.  The Kohler Art Library facility was funded by the Kohler family and Kohler Foundation.  Other previous donations have allowed us to enrich the research collections through the purchase of limited edition artists’ books, rare and out-of-print materials, expensive items such as illuminated manuscript facsimiles, digital resources, and important titles which fill a particular gap in the collection.
