Testimonial

"I cannot believe the vast amount of historical and up to date information in the HOPC library. Much included is extremely rare and would cost a fortune if it was even available. The price of admission would not cover even one piece that is contained therein. Besides all that is ready to start reading there are more items being added almost daily. Cannot recommend the library enough and i also feel good knowing that my contribution is helping to keep the HOPC site in operation."
