We present R~600 spectra from 9 - 20 microns of several well-known field brown dwarfs with spectral types M, L, and T. These data were collected as part of the Spitzer Guaranteed Time Observer Dim Suns program, which aims to provide a library of mid-infrared spectra of brown dwarfs. The subset of observations taken at higher spectral resolution will allow detailed comparison with atmospheric models and visible/near-infrared classification schemes.
