Students and local history researchers are welcome to make use of a wide range of resource material by appointment. The Mary Rochester library in the museum contains books and articles on the local history of the area and the salt and chemical industries in Cheshire. The library is named after one of the early curators of the museum who built up a wealth of resources connected to the salt industry in Cheshire.
