Canberra Insight Meditation Group – Library

A small library is available to committed members of the group. This means the people who come regularly AND are on the email list.

To borrow a book, refer to the list of books available on the website under Resources and email to ask for the book. The volunteer looking after them will bring the book and the card for you to sign to the group.

Books are available for one month. Return books on time. The group is taught and managed by volunteers and we’d rather not spend time chasing overdue books.
