- Library Rules -

NNGA members, NAFEX members, or those who become NNGA members when requesting a book, may borrow items from this list for up to one month. Due to the limited amount of material available only two items from each category may be borrowed at a time. Please indicate an alternate selection in the case that your first choice is already checked out. A fine of $.25 per item per week may be imposed on overdue books, and if not returned after an overdue notice, books may be replaced at the borrower's expense.

- Articles -

The NNGA has been publishing articles on nuts and nut trees in its Annual Report since 1910. We have selected some of these articles for summarization to show the visitor an example of the kind of information that is available. These articles may be requested for a small fee which covers postage and copying costs.

An index of NNGA Annual Reports from 1910 - 1974 that can lead you to other helpful articles is available for purchase. The Annual Report Index is available for purchase at $6.50. Add $1.50 for each non-US order to defray the cost of postage. All prices are quoted in US dollars and are for prepaid orders.
