Our library is a wonderful source for research, ideas for projects and pure pleasure in reading about our hobby.  Magazines are divided by name and the label on each box gives details as to their contents.

All books have been cataloged and put in topic order.  A list of all books with author and category is attached.  Please use the checkout card when borrowing a book and place in box on the desk.

For any questions or suggestions please contact the DMLS librarian Betty Lester
