About the Dimond Branch

Dimond Branch has approximately 75,000 books, compact disks, videos DVDs, audio books, audiocassettes, and magazines and newspapers for all ages. Circulating materials are largely of popular interest, with a strong emphasis on practical how-to topics and fiction.

The reference collection is one of the strongest branch reference sections in the system and includes many sources otherwise available only at the Main Library. Special interest collections include the American Indian collection (1,500 volumes), a small Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender collection (350 items), and a Chinese language collection (approximately 600 items serving both children and adults).

The branch is equipped with eight (8) computers with internet access for public use. Adaptive technology, including screen readers and enlargers, is available for those who are blind or who have low vision or learning disabilities.

Meeting Room

The meeting room has a capacity of 75 people. It features collapsible tables and chairs, a podium, bulletin board, and sink.
