The Carmelitana Collection is a private Library belonging to the Carmelite Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary and is located at Whitefriars Hall in Washington, D.C. The library is available by appointment, and non-rare materials can be obtained through interlibrary loan. We both welcome and encourage scholars and serious students who wish to do research in our Collection. Feel free to e-mail the librarian for appointments and with research questions. The staff is always enthusiastic to help with studies pertinent to our Collection, the Carmelite order, and the Catholic mystical tradition.
