WAGS Library Permanently Closing!

Our Library Collection is no longer located at the Whittier College Wardman Library and we have been unable to find a new home.
 
WAGS regrets to announce that our library is now permanently closed, and we will be liquidating our collection over the next few months.
 
​We will be offering our books for sale through various channels in the coming months.  Watch our website and newsletter for more information.  We also plan on offering many of our remaining books for sale at our Annual Seminar in January 2017.
 
Below is more information about our collection:
