On Sunday May 31, 1981(76,100), the Leo Bornstein Memorial Library was dedicated at the Chaim-Sheba Medical Center in Tel-Hashomer, Israel. Dr. Bornstein's personal collection on Plastic Surgery was donated to the library by his family and the ISAPS voted to contribute both books and money to this library and to establish it as the first Aesthetic Library of a series of member libraries on Aesthetic Plastic Surgery over the world. Several members of the Society and mainly of the Executive Foundation contributed with publications as well as with donations of approximately US $10,000.
