In order to better serve our out-of-town SSGHS members who wish to use the Library on a day or time when it is not scheduled to be open, we may be able to offer this service:
Four hours of self-directed research time in the library and the services of a volunteer librarian.
To sign up:
Send your request by U.S. mail (no phone calls or E-mail) at least a month in advance.
You will be sent a letter indicating whether or not a librarian will be available on the date requested.
