The Margaret Woods Allen Gerontology Collection was created by an endowment from Margaret
Woods Allen. This endowment was designed to establish a lending library of books and
materials that would provide senior adults and their families with information necessary
to continue to remain active and independent and to better understand the aging process.
The library contains over 1,000 selections for the enjoyment of senior adults. Additions
are made to this collection annually. The library is housed at the Hoover Center.
