The Quilters' Guild Library

Volunteers in the Guild Library

Borrowing from the Library

All Guild members are entitled to borrow books from our Library.

People who are not Guild members may apply for a Reader's ticket at a cost of  £15 per year.

If you find a book you would like to request on loan then you will also need to print off a copy of the Loan Request Form.

Complete the form and send it with your payment to Head Office where the Library Officer will process your request as soon as possible.

At present payment must be made by cheque which should be payable to "The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles" with your name, address and membership number written on the back.

Please be aware that we do not have volunteers in the Library every day and it may take a few days for us to deal with your request.  If you have any Library-related queries you can email the Library Officer direct.

Borrowers pay a fixed charge of £5 per book to cover the cost of outwards post and packing and must then return the book by Recorded Delivery in a padded envelope. A maximum of two books may be borrowed at one time.

Loans are normally made for a period of one month. Members who are able to visit us in York to borrow books do not have to pay for outward postage but please telephone ahead of your visit to check if the Library will be open. We have restricted opening hours until we are able to recruit more volunteers to help in the Library.
