The CMBA Library is an educational service to the members of CMBA. We encourage you to make use of the library’s books and videos, and to suggest new books we should have.
If you are a member of CMBA you may check out any book or video which interests you at our monthly meetings with the understanding you will return the item(s) at the next meeting. A listing of the books and videos that the Library has to offer can be seen at: Library Inventory.
There are no fines or late fees if you forget or miss the next meeting, but please make an effort to return things on time so others may check them out also. Thanks to all of you who faithfully use the library and return books/videos on time.
Please return your book/video to the next meeting. Do NOT drop off books at the Nature Center.
As needed, you can mail returns to:
