The Mission of the HTGC library is to meet the needs of the devotes for education, information and personal development regarding Hinduism and Hindu Culture. The HTGC Library provides all devotees kids, youth, adults and seniors educational resources and services to support them in their cultural growth journey.

We have been working to encourage kids to visit the library. Many of our volunteers are dedicated to keeping the library open on the weekends. We invite guests to the HTGC temple to utilize the library to the fullest extent they can.  

Lending books

Visitors can become members of the library and loan books. At the end of the loan period, members can return or renew the books they have borrowed. There is a one time fee of $10 to become a member.

Visitor Activities

Additionally, visitors to the HTGC library are permitted to read literature there. The main library room can be used for Hindu religious and cultural events.

Every time you go to the temple, kindly allow the kids to visit the library.
