My thanks to members for signing up to help in the library this year. It’s not too late to offer your help for 1 monthly meeting or several months. See Maria during library hours.
When we meet in person, the Guild Library is open at 6 – 7 pm and during the break. We are asking for 3 volunteers a month to help with the signing out of books. Volunteers will help open the library and work until 7 pm when the meeting starts. Then help during the break for members to sign out books. A Volunteer sign-up sheet will be in the Library. Please sign up. Each month the Library will have a theme and books will be displayed accordingly.
Members are allowed to take out 3 books a month. The Library will continue to sell off the deleted library books, donated books and magazines at the FOR SALE TABLE.
The Library Committee
The book sale us such a huge success it will now be a regular feature. Many books that have been taking up space in our library and donations will be available – monies collected will used to purchase newer quilting resources. Remember to bring your loonie and toonies to the next meeting and find a treasure that needs a new home.
