Currently, there are over 100 missing books; please review the Library Missing Books By Title and Library Missing Books By Author lists, and bring any found books (look for a label on the book’s spine) to the November 1st Guild meeting.
The Guild Library is a carefully curated collection of books relating to knitting. Our collection includes pattern books, stitch dictionaries, and books about techniques, ethnic knitting, fiber selection and even crocheting. We have built our library through donations and specific purchases. If you would like to recommend a title for our library or have a donation to make, contact Librarian Donna Mulcahy at LibrarianATSanDiegoKnittersDOTcom *.
The Guild Library is not available for general browsing at meetings, since it is stored off-site at the home of the Librarian. However, Guild members can browse the collection online and make requests; the Librarian will bring your selections to the Guild meetings (when they resume). Books may be borrowed by Guild members for one month.
How to Find and Borrow a Guild Book
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. The Ravelry listing is the most up-to-date. You must have your own Ravelry account to use this method.
Ravelry Method: Click here or on the image to go directly to browsing the Guild library.
1. In People, search for SDNCKG.
2. Click on sdnckg to open SDNCKG’s page. This is not the Guild’s Ravelry group.
3. Click on the Library to browse the catalog. Sort it by author, title or date published.
4. Email the librarian at LibrarianATSanDiegoKnittersDOTcom* to borrow books. Your requests will be brought to the next meeting (when they resume). Be sure to include your name, full name of requested book, and author’s name. Many knitting books have similar titles so be specific. (Hint: Copy the listing from Ravelry and paste in into your email!)
