We plan on opening back up sometime in the next 30-45 days.

We will be instituting an online store.  All literature orders will be required to be purchased through the online store.  If the customer chooses to pick up their order at the LDC, they must make an appointment to do so.  The LDC hours will remain the same, with 15-minute increments for appointments.

Contact with the public will be limited to greeting the customer at the door, receiving their payment (if necessary), and handing them their order.

We will be maintaining the safety guidelines instituted by Shelby County and/or the City of Memphis.

This system will continue until we can open back up to full operations at the end of the pandemic.

Thank you for your understanding.
Sincerely,
Memphis Area AIS

Al-Anon Family Groups has published a wealth of books and pamphlets to share our primary purpose: to help families and friends recover from the effects of someone else’s drinking. Al-Anon Conference Approved Literature complements the face-to-face meetings where Al-Anon members share their experience, strength and hope with each other, but it is only one of the tools of the Al-Anon program.

Al-Anon literature is understood best when used with other tools of the program – meetings, working the 12 Steps, participating in service opportunities. The books and pamphlets can enhance your personal recovery, but they cannot replace the hope and healing you will find at Al-Anon meetings.

The Memphis Area Literature Distribution Center (LDC) maintains a stock of Conference Approved Literature (CAL) and is a registered LDC with the World Service Office (WSO). WSO suggests that Al-Anon /Alateen groups and members in West Tennessee and Desoto County, Mississippi order literature through the Memphis Area LDC, rather than through the Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters. Purchasing literature from the Memphis Area LDC helps fund Memphis Area AIS public outreach programs. Orders are usually shipped within seventy two (72) hours of receipt. There is an 10% shipping charge (or a minimum of $7.50) added to all orders shipped from the LDC. Orders must be paid in full prior to delivery.

Literature is available for purchase during the LDC’s normal hours of operation:

Memphis Area Literature Distribution Center
3540 Summer Avenue, Suite 106
Memphis, TN 38112

Hours of Operation
Every Monday – 4 pm to 6 pm
Every Thursdays – 11 am to 1 pm
Cash, Checks or Money Orders Only
