Borrowing from the Library

Quilters’ Guild Library

The Guild library is going to re-open with limited access for anyone to visit and members to be able to borrow books as previously. It will open on the last Friday each month from 10.00am until 1.00pm. If you visited in the past, you will not find as many books available as previously, but hopefully the ones kept in York are the most popular ones. In addition anything the entire was in the reference section has been retained here.

Those books not in York are housed withing the library of the University of Bolton as a distinct collection and are still available for loan to members – but you have to visit in person to make the loan.

Dates for 2017 are as follows:  Friday June 30th, Friday July 28th, Friday August 25th and Friday September 29th. After that it should carry on being the last Friday in the month apart from December.

Please come along to visit us – bring a friend if they have not been before. It is open to anyone to visit, not just Guild members. We look forward to seeing you.
