About the Club Library.
- The library has a range of radio and electronics magazines and technical reference books.
- The library collection is stored at the clubroom. Items are NOT available for loan. If you want a copy of something, you can contact the librarian via email, and he will copy and forward it to you. We request a donation for this service, which will be determined according to what is involved.
- A facility is now available at the clubroom so you can scan pages and save to your thumb drive or CD.
- Items MUST NOT be taken from the clubroom. The collection is too important to lose any part of it, no matter how good your intentions might be.
