The MRCC Library

At the Marianist Retreat Center we have opportunities to experience God through the spoken word, (homilies, talks, discussions, one on one conversations), visually (Br. Mel’s art works, the grounds), and the written word. Check them all out!

About the MRCC Library

Please check out the recently expanded MRCC library which is located on the lower level next to the ping pong room. There you will find many books to enjoy during your retreat. Note that we have a large selection of Mary and Marianist books – as well as Thomas Merton books. 

In addition, each bedroom now has a book from the library. You may also check out books for 30 days and savor them in your own home. Please sign out all books on the honor system in the library room.
