How do I access the Library's online resources?

Do you accept book donations?
- We accept gifts of books or other materials with the stipulation that the Library Director or a person appointed by the Director is free to dispose of the materials, if they are unsuitable for the Library's collection. We do our best to responsibly dispose of items by donating them to a service that will try and sell them first and, as a last resort, recycle them. We also have a carousel located on the Library's lower level where the AMC community can take books for free.
