Recently our beautiful old courthouse building flooded with about a foot of water throughout the entire bottom floor because of a failure of the sump pump meant to prevent this from happening.


Besides addressing the damage to the woodwork and floors, the challenge will be a massive clean up and salvage operation to see what books and materials can be saved and what is a total loss. If you wish to order books and journals, it is possible that we will not have any available until we can raise the funds to print new copies to sell.


We regret the inconvenience this may cause. Because the sale of books and journals help fund our work, we are temporarily in a bind: we need funds to print new copies, but without new copies to sell we cannot order new copies!
