Library and Archives
With over 6,000 volumes related to firefighters and  firefighting, the Museum’s library is certainly a formidable collection of literature. Consisting of everything from handwritten journals from fire companies to periodicals to general subject books, to service manuals and more, the library collection and Museum archives helps the Museum staff to better interpret the Museum’s remarkable collection of artifacts. The library is available to the general public for research by appointment only. Please use the "contact us" page on this website to book an appointment for library research. Your appointment is not confirmed until you receive a reply from the Museum with a booking # for your appointment. Some of the volumes the library holds include:

Our Firemen, by A.E. Costello: This illustrated volume chronicles the history of the NYC fire departments from 1609 until 1887.  First published in 1887, this is a rare first edition.

Reminiscences of the Old Fire Laddies, by J.Frank Kernan: This volume colorfully describes the volunteer fire departments of New York and Brooklyn. First published in 1885, this is a rare first edition.

Those Magnificent Old Steam Fire Engines, by W. Fred Conway: Although a modern volume, having been published in 1996, this book is the definitive book on the steam fire engine, chronicling the history of these machines, the companies that produced them and where many of them are today.

A Pictorial History of the Fire Engine, Volumes 1 and 2, by Matthew Lee: Another example of modern volumes (volume 1 was published in 1997 and volume 2 in 1999) these in-depth books feature 300 and 400 pages, respectively, and are an essential to any fire service library collection.
