Library

The following books are currently available in the guild's library: Library-Inventory-April-2023 (1)

Library books are stored on a shelf unit in the closet in our meeting room at the Recreation Centre. They are sorted alphabetically on the shelves by name of the book, with the shelves labelled and separated by dividers. The library book sign-out/return sheets are in binders, again sorted alphabetically. There is a letter written on the book label indicating how it has been categorized alphabetically.

If you want to sign out a book or magazine:

  • There is no formal maximum number of books you can take out, but please try not to take out all the books available on the same topic.
  • Old books should be returned before new ones are taken out.
  • You are responsible for the book until you sign it back in. Don’t just give it to someone else without formally signing it in and having them sign it out.
  • Try to return the book(s) at the next meeting.

If you want to return a book or magazine:

  • Find the name of the book in the appropriate binder.
  • Fill in the date you returned it.
  • Return the book to the right shelf section or just leave it on the table or top shelf (after you’ve filled in the return date) and the librarian can reshelve it.
  • For magazines, simply fill in the return date on the sign-out sheet and leave it on the table or top shelf.
