Library Mission


In PF founder’s own words, Eileen J. Garrett stated her vision for the organization and the very fine research library which came to proudly carry her name:

“First, I envisaged the necessity of finding resources that could provide grants to those who sought after a wider horizon in reading. Second, this would involve a library and a public relations setup to answer the demand for literature and eventual study for those who might be ready to work in a parapsychological atmosphere. Finally, there would be the need to bring scholars together from different countries for discussion, as well as the need to keep contacts alive if eventual advancement of the theoretical discussion were to result in action. There were the goals, then to be reached if I would take psychical research out of the field of the abnormal, eccentric, or unreal, and bring together those who understood the deep unconscious forces at work.”
