Searching the Guild Library
The Guild maintains a large library of books, videos, pamphlets, magazines and samples pertaining to weaving and other fiber arts. These items are available to all members except distant members.
The library cabinets will be open and available from 7:15 pm to 7:45 pm at every monthly meeting when we have in-person meetings.
When we meet remotely, the library will be open once per month. Upcoming dates are:
Tues, Feb 22, 2022 1:15-2:45pm
Tues., March 22, 2022: 6:30-9:30pm
To request a specific book, contact our librarian at email@example.com
Our library collection is located in the Conference Room at the Howard County Center for the Arts, 8510, High Ridge Road, Ellicott City MD 21043. Please note the following COVID-19 guidelines and requirements for visitors to the Center for the Arts:
– Visitors must wear a mask and practice physical distancing (6 feet of space between others) while in public areas of the building (lobby, hallways, galleries, restrooms).
– Visitors must check in at the front desk.
– Hand sanitizer will be provided to visitors.
– If you are feeling sick, please stay home.
– Restrooms are available but water fountains are not currently in use.
– Air purifiers have been placed in public spaces throughout the building.
All materials are checked out for one month. A reminder of materials checked out may be emailed to members prior to monthly meetings. Borrowing materials is a privilege of membership and it is assumed that members will return materials when they are due so they can be enjoyed by others. If it is not possible to return materials on time, please email the librarian, who will renew the materials for another month. Fines will not be charged for overdue materials. Material not returned within 6 months will be considered lost. As many of our materials are out-of-print, it is requested that members donate the cost of a replacement copy of lost materials to the Library.
