available to SFFSA members for borrowing, and will be designated as the
Liz Simmonds Memorial Library.
This is about half the

East Street, East Town, Jo’burg (near Northcliff Corner).
you will need to drop in, as some members already do, in order to
browse and borrow books. A simple honour-based issuing

the library, and will substitute each borrowed volume by a
card bearing the borrower’s details.
Maximum per borrower, 5
books at a time.
