The Lenox Library encourages the use of its local materials for personal reference or home use.  For those who wish to use materials for publication, permission must be obtained from both the Lenox Library and (if applicable) the holder of the copyright.

Giving credit to the Lenox Library as the steward of this material will lead others to explore and research. It also helps us to measure user interest in our special collections.

You may request permission to publish materials from our special collections of rare books, manuscripts, and photographs by filling out the attached form. The form includes a licensing fee, to help us continue our stewardship.

For questions about the form, including the licensing fee, please contact the Library Director at
