Thanks for your question!  It may seem surprising, but the Rakow Library has a substantial glass fiction collection. Mainly, these books feature glass as an integral plot point. Some feature glass-working characters and some feature glass objects. However, a few books are included in the library collection because they feature an object from the museum or library collection as cover art.

These glass fiction books span all genres. There are glass romances, mysteries, fantasies, and science fiction. You may discover a murder committed with a glass blade or a dashing glass blower seducing the daughter of the factory owner.

Find glass fiction here at the Rakow or at your local library using this guide to glass fiction. The guide features glass fiction titles arranged both by genre and by glass technique. Hopefully you'll be able to find the perfect novel--whether you are a romantic who loves Venetian glass or an amateur sleuth with an interest in stained glass.

Each title in the guide is linked to the WorldCat record, which makes it easier for you to find the closest library that has a copy of the book you want to read. Enjoy!

If you see "glassy" fiction that isn't on our guide, let us know! We'll be happy to add more titles there and to our library collection.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with glass-related questions in the future.
