Lawrence C. Falk Library

The Collection

The Lawrence C. Falk Library is stocked with an extensive collection of current fiction and non-fiction bestsellers, audio books, and some DVD's.

The City is on a lease plan for our adult books, which enables the Library to receive newly published works the day they appear on store or library shelves. The plan allows for us to keep for our permanent collection 1 out of every 4 books we lease.


The library was named in honor of former Mayor Falk, who was instrumental in developing this important part of Prospect. Many of our books have been donated by residents since our opening on March 25, 2002.



The hundreds of children's chapter and picture books in the library's collection are purchased with the proceeds of the book sales or have been donated by the Prospect-Goshen Rotary Club. The collection contains most of the books on the public schools' reading lists, many classics, as well as books by the most popular modern authors.



The 2017 SPRING BOOK SALE, May 19 & 20, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., has something for everyone. The tables are loaded with quality used books and audio items.
