Loans and photocopies/scans:

Guild members may borrow many items in the Guild Library. Photocopies or scans of pages from valuable or fragile documents can be supplied in response to requests for specific information - requests should be made to the Librarian. There is no charge for this service, but it may be necessary for members to pay postage to return loans.

The Travelling Library Collections:Travelling Coll - Learners Liby2


There are three travelling collections:

  • The Learner's Library
  • The Trainer's Library
  • The Conductor's Library

These contain many of the books and pamphlets currently on sale from the Central Council, The Whiting Society, Steve Coleman and other publishers.


They are primarily intended to offer a "see before you buy" service to individual members. The collections are taken to branch meetings from time to time, but may be requested by towers or branches on application to the Librarian.


The Librarian is pleased to receive requests for help with enquiries or for specific pieces of information. Photocopies or scanned copies can often be supplied. Liaison will also be made with the Central Council Library if necessary.


An Author Catalogue of the books and pamphlets in the Library is available. It is planned to provide a subject listing shortly.
