Burton Historical Collection temporarily closed

The Burton Historical Collection is located within the Detroit Public Library - Main. According to a recent statement on the DPL website, "Due to flooding and the required clean-up, the Main Library will remain closed until after Labor Day."
Once the BHC reopens, an appointment will be necessary to conduct on-site research.
