Library co-ordinator Tonia White said "We have hundreds of preloved hard back, paperbacks, fiction, non-fiction, English DVDs, children's and cook books." There are also books on Rome, the classics, the famous painters, and English Language educational books while of particular note she says are a selection of "absolutely beautiful, out of print, vintage books." Prices start at 50 cent and everyone is welcome.
Attached to the parish of the American Catholic Church in Rome, the library has provided a lending service to Rome’s English-speaking readers for over 40 years, and is operated with the assistance of volunteers.
It is located on the second floor of the building to the right of the Church of S. Susanna, and it houses over 20,000 titles. Its categories include literature, art, religion, archaeology, history, travel, cookery and novels, as well as a children's section containing many out-of-print classics.
