Members have access to the library during each Member Meeting and can borrow materials until the following meeting for the small sum of 25 cents per item. To plan your reading in advance, review the Library List and send an email to JASNA Calgary to request your particular books, as our library is now too large to bring all the books to each meeting. If you cannot wait until the next meeting, try the resources of the Calgary Public Library.
