Wish List

 

 

The following are titles we hope to add to the collection, either as replacements for items that have gone missing or will complete sets already in the library, or new items that would make valuable additions.  These lists are works-in-progress and updated as we review and assess the collection.

 

 

Missing / Replacements –  If you have these books – or any books from the Temple – please return them as soon as possible.  When books are "borrowed" without being checked out, we have no idea when – or if – they will be returned and, therefore must consider them "missing" (i.e., stolen).  After waiting a reasonable time, we may purchase replacements, incurring unnecessary costs to our community, or decide to do without a copy, depriving access to others.
