 There are 2 copies of the book in the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, and an additional 43 copies available through the library’s affiliation with SearchOhio.  We encourage you to request the book early.  Please let us know if you need help requesting the book. Additionally, we have purchased a copy of the book for the CBI Library, through the generosity of the Women of CBI fund, and that copy will be available in the CBI Office for checkout.
