About the Dimond Branch
Dimond Branch has approximately 60,000 books, compact disks, DVDs, audio books, magazines and newspapers for all ages. Circulating materials are largely of popular interest, with a strong emphasis on practical how-to topics and fiction.
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 newest addition to Dimond Branch is the Seed Lending Library. Everyone is welcome to come in and check-out seeds. We ask that you return some seeds to the branch when harvesting crops to keep the collection viable. Regular seed exchanges and gardening programs occur throughout the year.
The branch is equipped with eight (8) computers with internet access for public use and seven (7) laptops are available for 2-hour checkout in the branch.
