The Phillips Library will be moving from its temporary facility in Peabody to a new location this fall. This move is part of the Peabody Essex Museum's plan to improve storage conditions for its museum and library collections. In order to carry out the move, the Library and Reading Room are now closed and all access to the collection of books and manuscripts is suspended through March 31, 2018. Further information about the new location will be forthcoming. Inquiries can be sent to research@pem.org, though response time may be delayed. We regret any inconvenience or hardship this may cause to researchers.
