Guild Library

The following library items are available on loan to any member in good standing who has been with the guild at least three months.  

Books:  There is no rental fee on books.  However, because of the value and the difficulty in replacement, there will be a $30.00 deposit fee on some items.  The loan period is from meeting to meeting.  If you cannot attend the next meeting, please have another member return borrowed items or mail them to the librarian.

Videos are available for rent at a charge of $5.00 for two months.  A $30.00 deposit is required and will be forfeited if the video is not returned at the end of the two week rental period.

Periodicals:  There is no rental fee for periodicals.  Time is limited to two months, or meeting to meeting.  It is the borrower's responsibility to return it to the librarian at the end of two months.  It may be returned with someone else or through the mail.

If you are interested in checking out one of the guild's many books, periodicals or videos, please contact Karen Dearing prior to a meeting and she will bring it with her.  Her phone numbers are:  505-334-2669 or (cell) 505-801-1165.
