Dave Colombo Memorial Library

Dave Colombo Memorial Library

Located on the main floor of the Gaia House Interfaith Center, the Dave Colombo Memorial Library has an extensive collection of books, videos, CDs, and magazines. "Dedicated to awakening and nurturing our humanity," this free lending library includes more than 1,500 titles on a variety of topics related to spirituality, inspiration, scripture, theology, ecology, self help, world religions, peace, and social justice. The collection is conveniently indexed online at LibraryThing.

Initially established by combining the libraries of the Associates Dedicated to Life in Balance with the personal collection of the late Dave Colombo, the library was later expanded. It includes generous donations from the heirs of Don Paige, Carlys Belmont and Easy Zimmerman, as well as the extensive collection of University Christian Ministries.

The library offers a comfortable reading area, Internet access, and space for meditation and meetings. The simple honor-system check-out makes it possible to borrow materials for up to three weeks.
