Library

        In addition to our member's personal libraries, the Oregon High Desert Grotto has its very own community library. The library is basically a collection of cave-related documents that's in the possession of one of our members. If you are a member of the Grotto, you are more than welcome to request a piece or three from the Grotto library. Requests are made through the Grotto librarian and arrangements are made between the two of you for pickup and dropoff. If you don't get the items back to us within a reasonable time, or if you lose them, the Grotto will ask for a replacement copy or reimbursement.

This page also includes other Grotto purchases that aren't apart of the library, but are used by the Grotto. They are listed at the bottom.
