Library and archives

The Sursock Museum library is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and studying local and regional art historical resources. The library holds numerous publications, periodicals, and original archives documenting modern and contemporary art practices in the region and beyond, making it a reference for students, scholars, artists, and curators.

In addition, the library hosts temporary displays, public programs, and an outreach program. 

The library also aims at preserving the original archives of galleries, cultural institutions, and artists in Lebanon. These archives will be publicly accessible for consultation and research, and looked after by a team of committed professionals.
