Anyone may use books and periodicals at the monastery or check out circulating items. Much of the cataloging, processing and shelving in the library is done by volunteers. The catalog is automated; you can access it by the Search button here. For further information on the library, contact Fr. Hugh Feiss / 208-761-9389
