In addition, many of the Society's publications as well as copies of our quarterly magazine, Momentum, are available online at our national website. To visit the national library, click here.
Our lending library consists of books, audio tapes, and video tapes on a multitude of subjects. Members of The National MS Society New Jersey Metro Chapter just have to call us at 1-800-344-4867 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with their requests and we will send out the materials. All materials are expected to be returned to the chapter within 30 days of borrowing date so that other members have the option to borrow the materials when you are finished. If you have any suggestions of books, audio tapes, or video tapes, please call and let us know.
