Bob Pamperin Memorial Library

The Library contains fiction and nonfiction books and movies related to Sierra Club  research, activities, and interests.  The rare books cannot be found in your local San Diego Public Libraries.

All members and their children have borrowing privileges.

Using the Library Catalog

Explore the collection online in many ways.  Here are two: via the Library Catalog and the Subject Tag Cloud. Both are powered by the free catalog platform, LibraryThing.

  • Library Catalog (list of titles with details). 
    • Even if you're used to online library catalogs, LibraryThing looks different. Use Catalog Help for features.
  • Subject Tag Cloud (a word "cloud" of book topics, much like an index. Larger fonts denote larger portions of collection. Click a topic to see all related books)

Take note of the item's shelf number, such as GV123.E4. Please contact the Chapter offices to ensure the item has not already been borrowed.

Would you like to add a review or more description to our library books?  Tell your fellow members what you think about our books and movies! You can do this from home by email or leave a note at the chapter for the librarian.
