Don’t throw those aviation magazines and books away! We have gotten a very good reception to making selected (newer) aviation magazines available free to visitors and the sale of duplicate books has raised over $900.00 the last two years in a row. We are now also selling used Non-Aviation books (including novels) that are not appropriate for an Aviation Library – so bring it on, nothing goes to waste.
