Our chapter also has started a small lending library.  If you would like to check out a book, please email our Librarian at or speak with any of the board members when you attend a local chapter meeting.  Our lending practice is for books to be checked out for 30 days (obtained generally at a program meeting and then returned at a program meeting).

We also accept donations of slightly used books to add to our library.  If you’re cleaning out your bookshelf and have a book you’d like to donate, please contact
