Reading is an important part of being a good speaker and thinker. Knowing first-hand the importance of books in shaping our thoughts and beliefs, we have a library at YOCS. We try to collect books that we think ought to be read. The list below keeps growing, as we add newer titles to our collection. Even as our Kindles and phones become more and more user-friendly, we still love our books. Our library is open to anybody who is a part of YOCS. If you would like to be one, drop by for a session!
