The Maggie A. Nalbandian Library
In the fall of 2015, Kepler College brought its library out of storage and made it available once again to all astrologers. This has been an exciting development, and we have already outgrown our space! The daughters of both Pat Geisler and Margie Herskovitz have sent us many boxes of books, yet we've run out of room to put them on the shelves. Your contribution will help us find a new home, where we can not only house our new donations but also hold in-person workshops in the Seattle metro area! To stay in touch with current developments follow Maggie's Library on Facebook and Instagram.
If you have enjoyed our community webinars and find them valuable, we hope that you will consider a donation to help defray our costs and build our programs. (We think we are at least as delightful as a cup of ice cream!)
The Alexandria iBase Project
Kepler has always been concerned with the preservation of our astrological and esoteric heritage. To further this goal, it has worked with the Urania Trust, Star Cycles and others to develop the Alexandria iBase Project. This project is now its own corporate entity dedicated to the scanning of astrological papers and out-of-copyright materials and the development of an online database that provides links to these digitized materials as well as a catalog of the astrological and esoteric book collections of participating libraries worldwide.
We are in the beginning stages of this project. We have received a $30,000 donation dedicated to high quality scanning and the initial development of the online library software and another $25,000 in donations to proceed. Our first major project was to scan the professional writings and research papers of Marion D. March. We are also in the process of cataloging out-of-copyright material that can be accessed as an ebook, a local library and soon the entire library catalog for Kepler College.

I strongly encourage astrologers to add the Alexandria Ibase Project to their estate planning. Several modest estates could help fund this project for a long time, helping to establish a permanent location and creating a trust that could provide staffing and other essential elements of a permanent archival collection—something any field seeking solid legitimacy must have. -- Anne Beversdorf, Astrologer
