Public Notice

Attention Fabric Fans, History Buffs, and all Residents of the Town of Mississippi Mills and surrounding area:

For your information, this summer the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum will open its textile research library as a Public-Access (by appointment only) Reference Library.

Our Collection covers many aspects of the Local and International Textile Industries, with special strengths in industrial Wool Processing, hand-loom Weaving, the chemistry of Dyeing, the history of Fashion, and more. We would hope that everyone including, artisans, industry workers, students, antiquarians, and professional researchers alike will find our library a source of Useful and Fascinating Information.

We are pleased to announce that the Conservation and Cataloguing of our Rare and Specialized Collection is almost complete. However, we are still in need of sufficient shelving for our books and of a photocopying machine for the use of Visiting Researchers. Any monetary Donation, great or small, towards the purchase of these items or a donation of any of the stated items would be much appreciated.

Please join us as we strive to keep the Memory of Our Town’s Heritage alive!
