Appendix G: The Society Library
The Society’s Library contains advanced and elementary books on printing
and closely related crafts, business organisation and costing, private press
books and specimens of printing. The Library book list is obtainable from
the Librarian. Gifts from members of suitable books for the Library are most
Books may be borrowed, free of charge, by any member who is resident in the
British Isles, and are mailed to members’ addresses in the British Isles only.
The Society will pay the outbound postage but the cost of returning the book(s)
to the Library must be met by the member. All requests for, and returns of,
books shall be sent to the Librarian, whose address is in the Membership List.
Requests for books shall give the name, address and membership number of
the borrower, the titles and reference numbers of the books wanted.
Members may not have more than three books from the Library at any one
time. The loan period for each book is restricted to four weeks. Any member
wishing to retain a book beyond this period must apply to the Librarian for
permission to do so. Extension will normally be granted, provided that no
other member has requested the book.
Books are normally sent out by second class or parcel post. Borrowers are
asked to note the method of wrapping used, and to wrap in a similar way
when returning books. Borrowers are asked to renew the wrapping when
necessary. An addressed label for the return will be provided.
