As well as these extensive online and physical collections, the Library offers quiet study space, a public computer room (including a black and white printer for you to use, in moderation, for free), flatbed scanners, and a 3D printer for patron use (please call the Library for more information on the restrictions on 3D printing.)
The Library offers programs for all ages throughout the year. The weekly preschoolers Storytime is typically on Wednesday mornings from 11am and features several stories and a crafting session. The Summer Reading Program runs during part of the DoDEA school holidays and involves several weekly events, digital tracking and badges, and free giveaway reward items. Our Dr. Seuss Birthday Party is always popular in March, and our Santa’s Storytime in December is not to be missed. We also offer movie showings, educational seminars, crafting for all ages, and much more. Many of these will be advertised in the 100 FSS publication Get Up & Go, so be sure to keep an eye out there!
You can find the Library in Building 425 (the old Sergeant’s Mess of charming red brick), across the road from Mickey’s near the roundabout. By car it’s easiest to turn in at Lodging, or if coming from the BX then turn left as if heading toward the Washington Square buildings.
Give the staff a call if you have any questions, or do please follow us on Facebook (@RAFMLibrary) to see the latest posts updating opening hours, events, new items, photographs, and more.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
