Lending Library 
For those avid readers a lending library is available at the center. The library is kept updated with some of the more recent titles as well as many of the older books. The books are donated by some individuals and some from the public library. Books are checked out on the honor system and we ask that borrowed books are returned so that others may also enjoy them. Open during normal business hours.
