Discover Something New
in the Library

We’re the Garden’s resource for plant information, botanical art, and all aspects of landscape design and maintenance. Our rich collection of books, magazines, and online resources offer a wide range of fascinating subject matter.  Visit us to learn about the history of gardening, famous landscape designers, plant selection and care, botanical art and our Garden’s history.

Our children’s area includes hundreds of books on nature, science, and plants aimed at our youngest readers.  We offer puzzles, artifacts (we are very hands-on!), a sturdy dollhouse to play with, and comfortable seating.

Need a rest after touring the Garden?  The library offers comfortable seating, study tables, and more things to view after your outdoor trek.  We are cool in the summer and cozy in the winter with our gas fireplace.

We offer something new and interesting all year-round with our changing displays and permanent art on display. Discover something new today in the Lora Robins Library.
