The Guild Library is Saved!
The Guild Library was a mainstay of our meetings at the SDUMC. We enjoyed educational visits to the library cart in the corner of the meeting hall where we could browse pattern books, consult stitch dictionaries, scan new purchases and check-out books for a month until the next meeting. When the Guild sought a new venue for monthly meetings, it became clear that no other location would allow us to store our library cart filled with Guild books. Many options were explored by the the Board, Librarians, and other Coordinators. The possibility of eliminating the Guild Library was considered and rejected. A solution was found and the Guild Library will continue!
In our new meeting location at Temple Solel, we no longer have the library cart holding our Guild Library at the meeting. The Library remains intact, however, and is stored off-site at the home of one of our Librarians. Guild members may still check out books and browse our Library on-line, and the Librarians will bring your book requests to the monthly Guild meetings.
There are two ways to browse and borrow on your computer, phone and tablet. Browsing on Ravelry is recommended because you can look inside most books to view the Table of Contents, lists of patterns, and selected pages. Point at Members, and click on Lending Library in the drop down menu for all details.
