IRB Library


Visitors and locals are delighted that IRB has its own small but substantial library. It is staffed by a full-time librarian and more than a dozen helpful community volunteers. The library runs a monthly On the Rocks book club and holds a weekly Story Time for children. The library also offers the use of computers and will make printouts and copies. Its bookstore sells affordable used hard covers and paperbacks. The library also operates four “Take-a-Book, Leave-a-Book” boxes throughout the city.
