Bethel AIS Library Program

We need to increase the size of our library. Below are a list of books we are specifically looking for.

This is by no means a complete list, but rather a compilation of recommendations from a multitude of sources. Can you help us find some of these titles, or others you know are great? They don’t have to be new, we just need to expand our library. We have a couple students who read nearly every book we owned last session.
