Piedmont Division Book and Video Libraries
The Piedmont Division Library is a resource available to the members of the Piedmont Division of the NMRA, providing them with access to modeling resources. The library contains a large variety of books including (but not limited to):
- How-To type materials
- Prototype railroad information resources
- Coffee Table type pictorial resources
- Historical railroad related materials
- Railroad related fiction
The Piedmont Division Library was started in January 2001 by Scott Perry and has become a valuable asset to the Division in much the same way as our Video Library. The Dick Holmes Estate provided a generous donation which was the seed for the library"s book collection. The book collection grows mostly through donations of books by members. Donated magazines and other materials have been sold to raise money for the library. The Piedmont Division Board has also generously authorized money to purchase materials to preserve and protect the books as well as providing funding to purchase large collections that have been offered to the library.
