Atsugi Station Library

Located on the second floor of the NAF headquarters building, the Atsugi Station Library is fully stocked with books, DVDs, audiobooks, e-books, video games and learning software to help you expand your mind. There's a children’s reading room and computing area; an adults’ computing area with printing, copying and fax services; and plenty of reading nooks and study spaces. There's also free wifi!

If you have a specific book you're looking for, you can view the full book catalogs of the Atsugi, Yokosuka, and Sasebo libraries here. (An inter-library loan system is in place for borrowing books from other bases.)

Books from the CNO Professional Reading Program (see "Downloads" for the list) are available for check-out. And if you'd like to access books from home, check out the large digital collection of audiobooks, language apps, homework help, practice tests and more available from the Navy Digital Library

The library is also where cultural craft classes are offered.
