Get to know the Army general libraries. You will find something for soldiers and families in all locations and military stages. There are 62 libraries across seven countries with physical collections in all formats. They support professional, educational and recreational reading.
Installation libraries play an important role for soldiers. They offer technical publications to support job requirements and career development. Soldiers can earn college degrees and certifications, update promotion packages, prepare for transition or retirement and more. Computers are available for completing training or personal education.
These libraries are also a “community couch” with programming, study and meeting spaces. There is something for everyone, including book clubs, story times and walks, game and movie nights. A themed summer reading program provides family fun. Evening and weekend hours accommodate busy schedules.
Makerspaces are now available in many Army libraries. All ages can explore and enjoy science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

The U.S. Army War College (USAWC) Library is located on Carlisle Barracks in Root Hall, Building 122, lower level.
The USAWC Library currently maintains 29 computer workstations with printers for use by customers with valid Carlisle Barracks network accounts. These computers provide access to the Library's catalog and subscription databases, as well as the Internet, intranet (CBNet), and Microsoft Office products.
The Library also has several computers where Carlisle Barracks network accounts are not required. These computers allow visitors and others to search the Library's catalog and databases. Access to the intranet (CBNet) is not available on these computers.
Computers are primarily for research use by our faculty, students, and staff. Priority is given to faculty and students. Using computers during busy times for recreational use is to be avoided. The USAWC Library strives to maintain the computers and printers, but occasionally equipment and systems malfunction. When this occurs, notify personnel at the Circulation Desk. Only USAWC systems personnel are authorized to load software on the computers and to modify software. Use of USB thumb drives is not permitted on network computers.
Active and retired military personnel working or residing in the Carlisle area may request borrowing privileges. Others should contact their local library to arrange interlibrary loans.
