The Rochester AIS Center maintains a stock of Conference Approved Literature (CAL) and is a registered Literature Distribution Center
with the World Service Office (WSO). Purchasing literature from the Rochester LDC helps fund Rochester AIS public outreach programs.
You can place literature orders for yourself or your group by either calling the Service Center or mailing a completed
literature order form. Additionally, literature is often available at Area Assemblies and other local Al-Anon/Alateen
events. Orders must be paid in full prior to delivery. There is an 8% shipping charge added to all orders shipped from the LDC.
Please call ahead to confirm that a Service Center (or AIS) volunteer will be available to assist
you with your purchase. If you are not able to meet a volunteer at the office, please call
Rebecca at Home: (585)-323-2231 or Cell: (585)-472-6393 to make other arrangements for
pickup. Leave a message on her phone if no one is there.

Important Information From The Book Depot
WSO has made us aware that there have been extensive changes across all sections
of our Service Manual 2018-2021 (P24/27), required following Al-Anon''s annual
Conference (2019). There will be no change pages to download for Version 1 because
of the multitude of changes. Those wishing to have a current printed copy of the
Service Manual will need to purchase Version 2. The online Version 2 will be
posted on November 22 and it is free to download. The printed Manual of Version 2
will be available January 31. These changes do not affect P-24 Groups at Work booklet.
Unfortunately WSO is not able to exchange Version 1 for Version 2. If any groups
or individuals need a Service Manual, I would suggest you refer to the free
download of Version 2 after November 22, and purchase a print copy if needed after January 31.
In other news from WSO, the 2020 Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism will be available in
late December. Please consider ordering from AIS Rochester. The pennies
difference we get from providing our groups with literature help keep the
lights on in the office!
