The Rudolf Steiner Library is the lending and mail-order library of the Anthroposophical Society in America. It includes a wide range of holdings, many of which are directly relevant to the programs and courses offered in the Camphill Academy. Borrowing service is free for members of the Camphill Academy and bibliographic research services are available at a reasonable rate. Fees for shipping and overdue or lost material still apply and are the responsibility of the individual or participating community.
