Borrowing from the Library

Quilters’ Guild Library

The Guild library has re-opened with limited access for anyone to visit and members to be able to borrow books as previously. It is open on the last Friday each month from 10.00am until 1.00pm apart from December. 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.

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.

Below is a list of the Library catalogue arranged by category.  These can be downloaded as pdf documents for reference.  Once downloaded the pdf document can be searched for particular books, topics or authors.
