Once upon a time the Guild maintained a hardcopy lending library. At the suggestion of Gered Beeby this was discontinued a few years ago. Most of the books were given away at the Guild Christmas party, December 2009.
Since then there have been efforts to create a lending library, exclusively for Guild members. An initial list has been formed with inputs from Gered, Ruth Leyse-Wallace, and Linda Loegel. This “Virtual Library” is now accessible via the Guild website.
There are no set lending rules. Each loan transaction will be resolved by the members involved – agreements between one professional and another. This vast amount of information can be shared for the benefit of everyone.
For those members wishing to make their books available to loan, simply provide the virtual information to Gered at firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone: 760-436-6312). Be sure to include your e-mail and telephone contacts.
