The Alternatives Library began as a resource collection founded by Rev. Paul Gibbons for his CRESP project on alternative communities and lifestyles. It became the Durland Alternatives Library in 1974 when it was dedicated as a living memorial to Anne Carry Durland by her parents Margaret and Lewis H. Durland to further the concerns of community and ecology which were important to her. Since that time, the library collection has been providing contemporary issue-oriented resources often unavailable in research and public libraries.
