Guests can visit one of five libraries and sample a broad spectrum of spiritual works – as well as a variety of poetry collections, an extensive mystery fiction section, wildlife guides, and many other treasures.
This library, on the ground floor just off the Common Room, is an inviting space and contains the largest Adelynrood collection. The card catalogue and current acquisitions are located here, as are special displays of conference materials. A librarian is on duty.
Hilda’s Rest, on the second floor, provides space for reading and writing and contains an eclectic biography collection with an emphasis of Saint Francis.
The Study on the second floor is home to the collection of art books, a display of some books from Emily Morgan’s collection, books by Companions, and older books in poetry, Theology, and church history.
This library is on the lower level and can be reached by the exterior stairs off the Della Robbia Porch. Here you will find books for children as well as our perpetual book sale; drop in if there is no meeting in progress.
The San Damiano Living Room has a small collection of nature guides and mysteries. It is often a gathering place for quiet conversation.
