Library Catalog

We have a collection of donated books on various topics of interest to non-religious readers. In addition, several of our members have provided lists of their own books which they are willing to lend out through our library.

How to Use

If you would like to borrow a book, use the “Contact Us” page contact form to request a book. We will reply and work out a way to get the book to you. Books are loaned out for three months at a time (with the option to renew, unless someone else has requested the book). Please take care of any books you borrow. Thanks!

At this time, the best way to search the catalog for a specific book is to simply use your browser’s “find” feature (a common quick-key “Find” command is Control + F). A little bar will appear near the top or bottom of your browser window where you can then enter your search words. (We hope that in the future we’ll have the time/resources to devote to making this catalog easier to browse!)
