Library books and videos may be checked out by NCWA members. A selection of the library holdings will be brought to the monthly meetings. Members can check out items by filling out the sign out / in book at the meeting. The check out period is for two months. Members can renew a borrowed item as long as other members are not waiting for that item.

The club’s annual budget provides a modest amount to add new materials to the library. If you have a suggestion for an addition to the library, or if you wish to reserve a book / DVD, please contact our librarian . Other suggestions regarding the library are also welcome. Our goal is to provide a resource that is widely used and easily accessible by NCWA members.
