Quilting Tips from Kingwood Area Quilt Guild
The Guild maintains a library of quilt books and related items, and makes a selection available at all general meetings.
Books may be borrowed for one month at a time. They may be renewed, but this must be done each month either by phone, email, or in person. Books may only be renewed once.
If you would like to review several titles before borrowing them, please contact the Library Chairman no later than the Monday before the general guild meeting. The Librarian will be happy to bring the items you request to the guild meeting.
Members are responsible for books checked out to them and must either return the books or replace them if they are lost or damaged. A fine of $1.00 per book per month will be charged for overdue books.
The guild library does not accept donations of used books. If you wish to donate books from your personal library, consider donating them to the fishpond at the biennial quilt show.
The library adds approximately four books each year. If you have any suggestions for additions to the library, please contact the Library Chairman. The Executive Committee approves each book purchase.
