  The HCC Library

The HCC Purser, Kent Walters, has completed the exhausting annual inventory of the HCC library, and the list of materials available is shown below. The HCC Librarian is Boatswain Paul Woodcock, who is the custodian of the vast collection. If you wish to borrow any of these books or videos, contact Paul and he will arrange to pull them from the shelves and bring them to a meeting to place in your custody.  Or you can work out with him some alternative way for him to hand off the books or videos to you.
