The library of the Israeli Perl Mongers includes nearly 80 books, mostly about Perl, programming, and other computer related subjects. The books are available as a special service for our members, and can be borrowed, free of any charge, by coming to our meetings. Specifically:

  1. To order a book, check its availability in the list below.
  2. Contact our librarian, Thomas Maier, and request the book.
  3. Show up at the next meeting and pickup the book.
  4. Read the book and write a review (you can email the review as simple text, or intersepted with simple HTML formatting tags, e.g. <b>bold text</b>, if you want).
    While this is not compulsory, it would be highly appriciated, as these reviews are one of the major motivations for our sponsors to continue donating books to our library.
  5. Return the book by coming to a meeting and returning the book to the librarian.
  6. If you want a book but it is currently held by another user, contact the librarian so that he can add you to the waiting list for that book.
