The RWS Library has one of the finest collections of modern periodicals, texts, and video tapes on woodworking in upstate New York. The library items may be borrowed by RWS members free of charge.

To borrow items, e-mail Connie Gates (lib@rochesterwoodworkers.org or call 585-218-9613). If the item is in stock, you can pick it up at her home. All items are due back in one month.

In addition, you can borrow items at the Friday night lectures. An assortment of materials is available then. If you want specific items, be sure to contact the librarian in advance so the materials are available at the lecture. You may also return items on lecture nights.

We welcome suggestions for library additions. Contact Connie (lib@rochesterwoodworkers.org) with your suggestions. Thank you.
