Croydon Library celebrated recently 40 years of operation in the community. The library has a wall of windows overlooking the small lake and many people visit the library to sit, read and admire the view. The building also houses the Croydon Historical Society. There are four children's storytimes a week at Croydon and there are large collections of adult fiction, large print, biographies and military history. Family History resources are also located at Croydon
