The library operates mainly as a resource center and uses a McNaughton subscription service for its small collection. This collection includes bound fiction and non-fiction titles, including biographies, language programs, reference, and Navy Suggested Reading materials. This also includes a number of fiction and non-fiction audio books and playaways.
We have a computer lab with full printing, faxing, and scanning capabilities, and a fully functional study space, including sound blocking doors, white boards, tack boards, a large conference table, and individual desks for those wishing to study separately, in a quiet space.
We are located inside the Liberty Center, on the backside of Navy Gateway Inns and Suites, BLDG 2958 RM 8253 (on the 2nd deck). The hours of operation are currently Monday through Friday 0900-2000 and Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays 1200-1700.
Our off site library resource is the Navy MWR Digital Library. This resource is available 24/7/365! It is open to Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Active Duty personnel, Reservists, Retirees, Dependents, Naval Academy Midshipman, DoN Delayed Entry Program Personnel, and Civilian employees (GS, NAF, CTR). They offer foreign languages, genealogy, current events, children's resources, and eBooks and audiobooks through Overdrive.
The Navy General Library Program offers their customers access to the CNO's and Commandant's Reading Lists, classic literature, and current fiction and non-fiction best sellers.
