About the Library
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 5 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.
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.
Residents who are unable to visit the library for health reasons should contact

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 dropped in the appropriate box.
All books, DVDs, CDs and puzzles
are donations from residents.
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.
