Library holdings

Information about the library holdings are available in the catalogues. 

The Book Catalogue contains information on all the books in the library.  It is sorted alphabetically by category.  Refer to the tips section if you need help finding specific information in the catalogue. 

Book Catalogue


The Newly Acquired link is a catalogue of books added in late 2019 and early 2020 before the suspension of meeting. 

If you have any questions about the library, please email the Library Coordinator.

Tips for using the Catalogues 

 * The catalogues can be downloaded to your device if you want to use the software on your device to search or print parts of the file. The main book catalogue is very large so printing the entire catalogue is not recommended. 

* When you have the file opened in your browser, you can use your browser search function to search.  

* If you want to look at books in a specific category you can refine you search by beginning the search string with, Category: followed by the category you want to look at.  For example searching    Category: Scrap     will bring you to the beginning of the books classified in the scrap category.

How to use the library when normal operations return

To reserve an item

Reservations may be made by email to the Library Coordinator .  To borrow a book at the next meeting send a reservation request to the librarian a minimum of 4 days prior to the meeting. A convenient link in the catalogue automatically generates the EMAIL for you to send to the library coordinator. 

To borrow an item 

At a meeting visit the library table and select the book(s) you would like to borrow. Take the card from the book pocket. Print the due date on the card.  This due date will be the next regular guild meeting.  Add name and phone number.  Present the completed card(s) to the librarian.  Books are due before the start of the next meeting.  Renewals of one month are at the discretion of the librarian.  

Renewal requests

An reminder EMAIL will be sent to all borrowers one week prior to the next meeting.  To request a renewal reply to the reminder EMAIL or send a separate EMAIL requesting a renewal.  The librarian will advise you if the renewal is acceptable.

To return an item

Return borrowed items at the start of the meeting to the Returns box on the Library table. 

Penalties

Overdue fines are $1 per month per item.  Members with overdue books will be emailed, then telephoned, if outstanding for more than one month.  All books must be returned or replaced by the end of the year (June meeting).  Damaged or lost books are the responsibility of the borrower who will be charged a replacement fee equal to the cost of purchasing and shipping the book.
