New Library Acquisitions

The Institute Library is one of the largest private military collections in North America, with over 15,000 volumes, and is constantly expanding its collection with new material.  We welcome donations of new books from authors and publishers, many of which are featured here.

The library has a fine collection of military poetry and is actively seeking to expand its holdings with recently published works as well as older titles.
