We have added the below listed books to our collection this month. Every month we keep adding to our collection, the latest and the best in the category.
All new additions to our library are timely and relevant to our focused categories. We have 19 categories we focus on, which you can see on our website – www.vcenterlibrary.org .
If any member wishes to talk on any of these books or topics and have an interactive discussion on it, we could arrange to have it here on a Saturday. It could be a 1 or 2 hour session. Do let me know if you are interested or let me have your views on this. You may email me for any clarification.
