Library Holdings

The guild library has an extensive range of books, magazines, dvds and videos which are available for members to borrow at the monthly meetings


Borrowed items should be returned at the next meeting. Members' cooperation in this is greatly appreciated. It makes the items available to as wide a range of members as possible and makes the librarian's job easier!


A full list of the guild's library holdings appears below.


Any queries regarding the library feel free to e-mail me or call me (469-8838)
