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 Lawrence C. Falk Library is hosting its Spring Book Sale on Friday and Saturday, May 18 & 19, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The tables are loaded with quality used books and audio items. Do you fancy a trip to foreign lands, a new gourmet recipe, a deeper look into the human mind, or an adventure full of danger and romance? You can find it all in a book, without ever leaving Prospect.

Due to the small size of our parking area and multiple
complaints, trailer parking will no longer be allowed in the lot at Harrods Creek Park. You can go down and unload, but you will have to park on Montero Dr. Due to City ordinance trailers MUST REMAIN ATTACHED TO VEHICLE WHEN PARKED ON THE STREET. Also I have been notified that people are parking in the grass and where ever else they can fit in. Citations for illegal parking WILL be issued. We realize it is an inconvenience, but we are a new and growing facility and must protect what we are trying to create. Everyone’s cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Thank you
