The Winterthur Library, part of the Winterthur Museum, Library, and Garden, is a national treasure. Its 100,000 volumes, early American rare book collection, Shaker materials and ongoing exhibits make it a rare book wonderland of early American records and artifacts that librarians and teachers dream about.
