automatic document production

I'm facing the following problem. An association has about 700 members and 
keeps information about them (name, address, language skills, hobbies,...)
in a database. Once a year this association wants to produce a book with
all this information, to be published and distributed to the members.

How can this be done in an efficient way? Does anyone know of some sort of 
interface between a database (which format??) and (La)TeX, so that with a 
few commands the relevant data gets extracted from the database and turned 
into a file that (La)TeX can process?

Thanks for your help!
