Although we are still unpacking, we are ready to fill new requests for library materials, and receive materials you wish to return. You may also renew items you have checked out unless another borrower has requested them. Just phone, email, or text us (mailing address & contact information below).

Because members were enthusiastic about borrowing books for a full year when we closed in 2013, we will continue this practice. Materials can also be renewed for 6 months. One exception: materials will be subject to recall after 3 months if requested by another borrower.

We had hoped to offer free mail-order lending in the coming year, but are unable to do so. Mail borrowers will need to continue to pay the round-trip postage fees for mail-orders. Library rates range from $2.59 for 1 pound, to $6.91 for 10 pounds. Most orders are within the 1 – 10 lb. range.

We are in the process of updating our Paypal account to accept postage reimbursements, but you may still pay for postage by mailing us a check or stamps.

Research services will be available as time permits. The first half-hour of research is free to members, and thereafter is $30/hour with a $15 minimum charge.

Due to the substantial reduction to the 2016 Anthroposophical Society in America budget, we are in straitened financial circumstances. Please donate what you can: https://secure.anthroposophy.org/np/clients/anthroposophy/campaign.jsp?campaign=145

Our new Friends of the Rudolf Steiner Library group is working to obtain tax-exempt status. Charitable donations to the Friends will directly support library services and programs, along with facility, equipment, and materials collection needs. We’ll keep you updated on the Friends progress.
