Jill T. Rinehart Library

Fall 2020 Update: The center's library will not be available on a drop-in basis until public health restrictions to control the spread of COVID-19 permit greater access to the Women's Center. 

The collection of books we offer in our library focuses on a few types of relevant books that relate especially well to our efforts to promote self-care, to provide engaged scholarship opportunities, and to celebrate trailblazing women:

  • Literature - novels, poetry and plays to help you recharge or relax
  • Feminist theory volumes and foundational texts in gender studies
  • Books about Inspiring Women - biographies and other books that celebrate women's achievements

We look forward to being able to share our library with you again soon. Please stay tuned!
