The Allen Terrace library was built with the vision of the late Housing Commissioner Ray (Butch) Casterline. It was his goal that Allen Terrace residents would have access to a wide variety of reading material on site. With the help of the Northville Kiwanis Club, Butch led the effort to create the Allen Terrace library. The Northville District Library works with the Housing Commission to see that Butch's dream is kept alive. After Commissioner Casterline's death in 2004, the Commission renamed the Library "The Butch Casterline Memorial Library" in his honor. The Northville District Library regularly updates the collection for the residents' enjoyment.
In 2000 former Housing Commissioner Sue Ellen Hooper created Allen Terrace Technology Center for the residents of Allen Terrace. She started with one computer which was donated from local dentist Dr. James Payne and has managed to add four additional computers over the years. In 2014, Vision Computer Solutions of Northville donated five new computers to the center.
Allen Terrace Technology Center is open to residents 24 hours a day 7 days a week with high speed Internet access.
