We have a large collection of exchange journals and books. The Library is open from 7:00 to 7:30 on meeting nights. Please remember to bring back any books you have out. Borrowing is for MEMBERS ONLY. All items are due at the next regularly scheduled meeting. Most of our library collection has now been entered into a database (including pictures of many of the covers!). See what we have in the collection. Maybe we have that book you’ve been looking for.
