Come check out the new location!
The MWR Library has moved from the Van Noy building on 12th Street, Bldg 1024, to the Sosa Center located on Belvoir Road, Bldg 200. Although smaller than the previous standalone facility; the library at the Sosa Center includes a collection of books and audiovisual materials for children, teens and adults as well as small collection of magazines and newspapers.
The book drop is located outside of the Sosa Center bldg. 200 to the left of the front stairs (looking at the building).
We would like thank every one of our patrons and appreciate your patience during this time of change. We hope you enjoy the new space!
