The library attends to museum staff and external researchers who request this service on Monday to Friday mornings, by prior appointment . There is no borrowing service. The collections are extracted by museum staff and may be consulted in the reading room only.
A large part of the antiquarian book collection belonged to Sorolla and his family. Some of these remain in their original location and are a part of the permanent exhibition. Visitors can view the titles to discover some of the artist’s literary and artistic interests.
