The Kilby Reading Room, named in honor of Clyde and Martha Kilby, is a quiet space available for use by anyone interested in using the Wade Center's collections. Room use is by appointment, and walk-ins are accommodated as staffing & scheduling allow. There is no fee to use the Reading Room, but users must complete an application form after their appointment has been confirmed. All Wade Center materials are non-circulating. Additional materials and collection highlights are on display in our Museum.
