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 a small Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender collection, a small Arabic language collection, a Chinese language collection and a Spanish language collection.

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
