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.
