The Perpich Center for Arts Education Library seeks to support
teaching and learning through the arts in Minnesota by loaning arts
and arts education materials directly to MN residents (18 and older)
who are K-12 and post-secondary teachers, artists, staff from art
organizations, researchers, or any interested citizen for a period
of three (3) to six (6) weeks.
We are a lending library of more than 15,000 arts and education resources for artists and all
k-12 educators. In addition to a diverse representation of arts and education areas, we have
special collections focused on: multicultural and diversity resources, professional
development and research, dance education, and National Gallery of Art teacher resources.
We also provide library services to Perpich students and staff.
