DAS Library

                           

Delaware Astronomical Society Library

                                                         

All DAS Members can check out books from the DAS Library and take them home to read.  Generally, club members will take out the books at the time of the monthly meetings and then will return them at the next monthly meeting.  But, if no other member needs the book at that time, the member can generally take the book out for another month.  The procedure for checking out books is to contact the DAS Librarian and sign out the book in the Library.
