The Peace & Justice Center Library

Throughout our history, the Peace & Justice Center has often maintained a library of books dedicated to social transformation and radical community work. We are so proud to continue this tradition!

Our library is free and open to the public during our regular business hours. Please feel free to come browse our selection and check out a book! You can also browse our catalog online via the button below. We currently lend books out on 3-week intervals.
