FLOW Paddlers' Club Library

FLOW Library

FLOW is now the best place in upstate NY to get your hands on paddling books and videos.

Library items may be checked out for 2 weeks! And yes, there is a late fee, $2 a week.

The library is in transition, hopefully a new librarian will be found. For now contact Don Shaw about where to find the library.

For resource items, please contact the owner.

This library will grow by small annual purchases and (hopefully large) donations. If you do not want to donate, it can be listed as a resource. This means you are letting FLOW members know you have something to lend out.
