The public reading room is used to consult material from the Talman Regional Collection, The Benson Special Collection and Western Archives. Low and
medium use library materials are requested through the Shared Library Catalogue and sent to a pick up location specified by the requestor. In addition to its

Catalogue via a PC and a SunRay.
