Collections

Clift Rodgers Library has approximately 9,000 books in our collection – 6,000 for adults and 3,000 for children. Since we are an independent library, there are short waiting lists – or no waiting lists at all - for books.

A wide variety of current fiction and non-fiction is available as well as classic works by authors such as Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Mark Twain. A lighter collection, known as the "Peggy Beals' semi-classics," includes many cherished novelists like Joseph Lincoln, John Buchan, and D.E. Stevenson. Adult nonfiction offers biography, health books, cookbooks, gardening, and more.

The children's collection includes picture books, early readers, fiction chapter books, and popular mysteries. In juvenile nonfiction are biographies and nature and science books. A young adult section features many popular authors.

Our limited space precludes a reference section, but we can help with some requests.

Below are adult books added to the collection in the past months:
