We have a lot of new books in the library this month. There will be a limit of two new books per person to check out each month. Look for them on the “new books” table by the library check out table.
UVQG has a large selection of quilt books available for check out--a great member benefit!
The library will be open in the main meeting room by 1 p.m. The Library will be closed when the main meeting begins. The library will not be open after the general meeting.
All returned books should be left IN the gray return crate and NOT on the table. If you have books to return, please plan to arrive a little early to return your books so they may be checked back in before we close up.
Library book tables will be labeled with book categories (see list below)
Keep the book ideas coming. You can either write them down in our suggestion book at the library, or contact the Librarian. (Select 'Board Contacts' under 'Guild Info' tab.)
If you want to check out a book and it is already checked out, we can put a hold on it for you.
If you have quilt books you no longer use, we can either put them in our library or sell them at our November book sale. Proceeds are used for purchasing more library books.
