project was provided through a grant from the Corporation for National Service.

insurance issues to youth service. These materials in audio, video, and book form are
available to Montanans across the state through the Montana Interlibrary loan Program.

they will be able to assist you in receiving the titles you choose from the
Montana State Library. If the book you request is being used, you will
