* 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.
To reserve an item
Reservations may be made by email to the Library Coordinator a minimum of 4 days before the next meeting. A convenient link in the catalogue automatically generates the EMAIL for you to send to the library coordinator. Since only a rotating portion of the library's holdings are available at any one meeting, a reservation ensures that the item will have been brought to the meeting.
