Located in Minneapolis, the library holdings include over 20,000 monographs and exhibition catalogs, 150 current periodical subscriptions, and 700 bound volumes of periodicals and newsletters. Additionally, the library holds more than 3000 artist files.

Many have been digitized and are available through the ACC Library Digital Collections. Additionally, organizations such as the Furniture Society and SNAG have shared materials to be included on the digital collections platform.
