Resources Available Through MARE's Lending Library
The MARE office has a long list of resources available for loan to anyone -- workers, agencies, individuals, support groups, churches, etc. Books can be checked out for a month, and videotapes are available for two weeks. Because many materials are popular, we ask that you call well in advance if you need a resource for a certain date.
