RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR USE OF LIBRARY
The NSGS library collection is located in the Beatrice Public Library at 100 North 16th St., Beatrice, NE 68310 (402) 223-3584. The library is available to the public free of charge. Holdings are listed on the house computer as “NGS”. Some of the rare books and books in delicate condition are located in the Heritage Room.

Any member of NSGS in good standing is eligible to use the lending library. Remember, this is your library and your material, so please handle the articles as if it were your personal possession. If the material ordered from the library is presently on the shelves, it will be mailed out to you within a few days. If the item is already out, no notice will be sent to you unless the waiting period will be over four weeks.
Please abide by these simple rules:
On your order include the following information:

2. Your full name, mailing address and membership number (from membership card or quarterly mailing label).
3. Your e-mail address (or SASE) in case of need to contact you.
