Lending Library

Our Lending Libraries are available to all parents, teachers, and child care providers.

Our lending library in Fort Payne is our main library, but we also have a second library in Guntersville, both conveniently located in our Child Development Centers. We have thousands of children’s books, videos, and teacher instructional and resource books. These books and videos are all available, on loan, free of charge.

Fort Payne Library and Guntersville Library are now open by appointment.
Please contact Samantha Rogers to schedule a visit!


Resource Rooms

In addition to our Lending Libraries, CRN has a large laminating machine, lots of scrapbook punches, and an Ellison die cut machine with a large number of dies available for your use, free of charge. We also offer curriculum theme boxes, free of charge, to child care providers. Our Resource Rooms are also conveniently located in our Child Development Centers in Fort Payne and Guntersville.

**Please be aware that the Resource Rooms are open at the same times as our Lending Libraries.**
