The attachment 'Library Section' contains a list of books which are considered to be of use to the Modern American Square Dance Caller with advice on the different types of calling, resolution of squares, singing call patterns, lists of all the programmes with definitions and timing from basic through to C2, advice on good choreography, smooth dancing, good timing and many more such like goodies.

The attachment 'History Section' contains a list of books which include histories and memories of square dancing.  Also included in this section are traditional dance instructions and books to help you do One Night Stands, Western Line Dances, Solo dances as well as descriptions of Contra dances.

The attachment 'Technical Section' contains a list of books with information on how to sound a hall, how to build a hall, how to build a square dance outfit (this for the seamstresses among us), how to run a business meeting, understanding the theory of music and how
to use your equipment to its best advantage. All useful information outside the
actual skills needed to call a dance.
