Volunteer Opportunity! We are looking for a few creative souls to help build the Library into a "knowledge center" that will provide insight, guidance, and inspiration to seekers on the spiritual path. Short book reviews, an expanded reading list, and "audio books" are a few things we'd like to add, but all ideas are welcome! If you would like to help with this project, please contact us.
