The Mitchell Library opened in 1877. One of the earliest decisions of the library committee was to put together a collection of items relating to Robert Burns.
The Library aimed to collect all available works by Robert Burns, about him or anything that was in any way related to him.
The Collection is still being added to and now contains over 5,000 items. It is believed to be one of the largest in the world.
