Allen Gerontology Library

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.
