Named after long-time volunteer, librarian, and mother of staff member Jeannie Carl, The Dorothy Higgins Memorial Library is a popular stop at CCEEC. Local students needing information for reports and research projects, members of the public trying to identify the “bug” they just found in their house, and teachers looking for new and exciting ways to get their students interested in environmental science are frequent users who often find just what they’re looking for.

Hundreds of books, videos, slides and DVDs on any number of nature topics are available for use by the general public. Spend a quiet afternoon reading in the library, or sign the materials out and take them home for a short time. Either way, you are bound to find something of interest here.

In early 2007, the library was renovated with custom-built pine bookshelves, a video viewing area and copy center. It remains the most peaceful indoor spot visitors will find at CCEEC.
