THE BATES ASSOCIATION LIBRARY has the following content. We are sorry that at this time nothing can be loaned out. We are in the process of putting everything on either CD or microfilm and they will be made available soon. We will however, do look ups and make copies for Members. Non-Members can have things looked up for a fee.
