Library Culling of Books

The MGS Library Committee is beginning a process of culling some books from our collection. The books to be discarded are being offered first to MGS members. As they progress with the process of downsizing, the Committee will be making lists of books that will be offered to MGS members first. The lists will be posted on the MGS web-site for one month. If no member has requested a book by the end of one month, it will offered to another organization. For the first list of books, click on the following link: List of Books .
