The Sierra Club has maintained a library since its beginnings more than a century ago.

From those small beginnings the library has grown to accommodate the...

The "triple-decker" novel was a standard form of publishing for British fiction from the early 1800s until the 1890s.

Unlike free public libraries, these circulating libraries charged patrons to borrow books, much like video rental stores do today. Publishing longer works of fiction was quite expensive, and by releasing them in multiple parts...
