Lending Library

Our lending library may be viewed on our facebook group. It's materials are available for our members to check out. We encourage you to leave a review for your fellow ICANers in the comments.

Why join ICAN?

Membership to ICAN is not required, but we encourage your financial support to help ICAN continue its mission. Your tax deductible membership helps internationally with research, white papers, legal aid and advice, and many other things ICAN does. Locally, your membership helps us attend local birth fairs and represent ICAN to women in our area, as well as buy new materials for our lending library. Please consider joining to help us out!
