The Robson Ranch Library is located on the east end of the Creative Arts & Technology Center (CATC).
It is free and open to all residents.
You can get a library number weekdays between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The library holds a collection of fiction and non-fiction books (including large-print books), a paperback book exchange,
DVDs, CDs and jigsaw puzzles.
You can check if we have a hardback book by visiting https://opac.libraryworld.com and entering Robson Ranch Library when asked;
no password is needed. The box at left of the page scrolls down to let you check books by a specific author or books by title.
It also gets three online newspapers courtesy of Friends of the Library:
Denton Record Chronicle, New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal.
The room has free WiFi, several computers and a printer for residents' use, and a comfortable reading area.
It is our wish to help all Robson residents enjoy the materials
that are available in our beautiful library!
The Robson Ranch Library is open
seven days a week from from
9:00 a.m.- 9:00 p.m.
The Robson Ranch Library is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed by volunteer residents.
Paperback books are not accessioned and do not need to be checked out.
All other materials, however, must be.
If no one is at the desk, you will find a checkout sheet on the counter.
Just list your name, library number
(if you remember it), title of the work and its accession number. This number is on the cover of videos, CDs and puzzles, and on the first page of hardback and large-type books.
Materials for return should be given to the volunteer at the desk or, if no one is there, dropped through the marked slot in the side of the desk near the entryway.
All books, DVDs, CDs and puzzles
are donations from residents or purchased with funds from Friends of the library.
Because of limited space, the library accepts only hardback books published within the past three years. (There is no publication-date limit for paperbacks.)
All items are evaluated for
popular interest and condition.
