The group maintains a small library of books, CDs and DVDs. To borrow from the library you need to have attended at least two group meetings and registered your contact information with the group facilitators. We normally allow people to borrow items for two months, but please bring them back earlier if possible.

Edinburgh residents who have joined a local council library can borrow from thousands of electronic books, audio books, magazines and newspapers online.
