how it works

All books and publications in our collection are for loan

Membership to the library is 5 dollars per month

To browse the catalog or reserve a book, view the library.

Your subscription goes toward the management of our inventory, purchasing new books for the collection, and future community programming

the rules

Members can loan one item at a time

All loans are for 30 days

Out of respect for the collection and fellow community members, we ask that members please not write in or deface the books

Pick ups, drop offs, and browsing can be done at Lichen during their shop hours, or by appointment
