Celebrating Diversity

Our collection

The J. Lewis Crozer Library collection actively promotes diversity. Each collection in the Library has both a general section and an African American section. Furthermore, our librarians have been diligently adding titles for all ages in Spanish. The specialized collections promote literacy among our patrons and provide easy access to books for school projects and life-long learning.
