Nolan Children's Book Collection

Publication Date



The Nolan Children's Book Collection includes approximately 3,000 volumes of material dating primarily from the 1940s to the 1960s. All material in this collection is catalogued and available via the ACU library catalogue.

The Nolan Collection continues to grow as a result of ongoing donations by John and Grace Nolan. The collection is located at the St Patrick's campus of the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne. It is kept in locked glass fronted cabinets but can be used within the Library on exchange of ID. The Nolan Collection is complemented by the Culican Children's Book Collection.
