The Collection

All Three Libraries

All three libraries have hardcover fiction and non-fiction, large print books, paperbacks, and magazines. The collections at DesertView and SaddleBrooke Libraries are cataloged and checked out for various loan periods, while the Cholla Library at MountainView books are not cataloged and they may be borrowed and returned to the library without checking them out. Since the libraries are small, we have collected some items at only one or two locations. These special collections and their locations are listed below:
