Pamphlets and Ephemera

The Library has a collection of over 500,000 items in its pamphlets and ephemeral materials collection. Materials in this collection range from one-leaf printed flyers to paperback books of over 100 pages. These publications are fully cataloged and cover the same broad range of subject areas as do the Library's general and genealogical collections. 

Materials are designated for this collection because of size or fragility or, in the case of serials, when only individual numbers or extremely short runs of the title are held. Items in the pamphlets and ephemeral materials collection may be requested in-person at the Library's Circulation Desk or via Interlibrary Loan.

To discover if the library owns a particular title, search the Library Catalog (formerly MadCat). For more information, contact the Library staff by email at or call us at 608-264-6535.
