Harlan House is home to its own library, consisting primarily of books not available in Cole Library. These are mostly books related to feminism (many of which were donated by Diane Crowder), but there are an assortment of other topics as well. Currently the library consists of over 500 books and is slowly being organized and sorted. Non of these books come from Cornell, and are all donated or purchased by group members, please be respectful as we don't have multiple copies of most of these books. All books are available for checkout to any member of the campus, but please check with a house member before removing any books. It's also a great place to study!
The House is home to a full kitchen, with all sorts of pots, pans, baking utensils and most anything one would need to make some good food. We also have a share cabinet (located up and to the left of the oven) containing ingredients and food that is for anyone to have (we ask that you aren't too greedy though). This is available for any student to use, but if you're making anything that takes a lot of time, please check with a house member first as the kitchen is often needed for events. None of the cookware, ingredients, or plates come from Cornell, so please be kind, these have taken years to accumulate and are essential to the group.
The Family Room is also open for anyone to use. We have a TV, some couches, some workout videos and yoga mats, DVD player, and varying game systems. Again, any student can use this space, but please be respectful of house members and remember, this stuff sin't school property, it belongs to the group and took a long time to get, so please don't abuse any of it.
Formerly known as the Shit Room, this space has been repurposed into a work room containing two tables and a bunch of folding chairs (which do belong to Cornell!). The house has a sewing machine available for anyone to use, and this is a great all-round work space.
