LIBRARY

VANCOUVER RHODODENDRON SOCIETY
Frances Lam, Librarian

The library books are shelved in the Floral Hall of the Van Dusen Gardens, and the library is open to members during scheduled meeting times (third Thursday of each month, September - April). It is expected that books borrowed at one meeting will be returned one month later at the next meeting (except for the extended April - September period). Books "On Reserve" should not be removed from the library.
