Get to know the Army general libraries. You will find something for soldiers and families in all locations and military stages. There are 70 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. They also support career development. Soldiers can earn college degrees and certifications. They can update promotion packages. They can also prepare for transition or retirement and more. Computers are available for completing training or personal education.
These libraries are a “community couch” with programming, study and meeting spaces. There is something for everyone. Programs can include 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, or STEAM.
