The Center has an extensive, up-to-date Lending Library on a wide variety of topics related to the childbearing year and the promotion of healthy families. The collection includes books, DVDs, and CDs. Books required to complete DONA International birth and postpartum doula certification are available. Topic areas include: nutrition, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, postpartum depression, grief and loss, vaccines and informed choice, herbs, homeopathy, yoga, exercise, women’s health, parenting, adoption, midwifery, anthropological studies, business development, and more.
The Center is not staffed as a drop-in center. Our Lending Library is self-serve and is open most weekdays. Reliable hours are as follows:
Wednesdays & Fridays, 10am-4pm
Please follow the instructions posted regarding use of the library and don’t allow our materials to collect dust in your home for weeks, months, and years on end. Someone else is waiting to use them! Materials can be returned to the Drop Box just inside our front door anytime (the Center need not be open).
In addition to the Lending Library, available resources include:
- bulletin boards and display areas for events, brochures, and business cards
- a variety of free catalogs and magazines
