Founded in 1891, The Army and Navy Club Library is one of the oldest private libraries in the District of Columbia. The library has grown from a single room "set aside on the second floor" in 1912 to 20,000 volumes in the spacious third floor quarters of the Club. With its wide range of books, periodicals and the finest private military collection, The Army and Navy Club Library provides an outstanding source of information and the perfect place for professional reading and keeping up with the day's news.

The Library maintains a circulating book collection from which members and authorized guests may borrow for a period of 30 days.
