Camden-Carroll Library was designated a Federal Depository Library in 1955. We currently receive approximately 30% of the materials distributed by the Government Printing Office in Washington D.C. These materials are distributed in many formats including paper, microfiche, videotape, CD-ROM, DVD, and online/ electronic documents. The U.S. Documents collection is located on the 2nd floor of the Library and is open to the public. Most of the documents can be checked out of the library.
