Posts relating to library items from Patricia:
Hi, everyone, great meeting last night!
I didn’t get a chance to discuss books, fearing lack of time. I have been given
a box of weaving/spinning/felting books from Polly, Lorna’s Mom. She is willing
to both sell some and donate some of them to the library.
Given our discussion on space, we probably don’t want to put all of them in the
library. There is very little overlap with our library – only 3-4 books. The majority
are weaving books, but sort of non-mainstream ones, IMHO.
I’ve chosen a few that I think really belong in our library:
Rag Rug Handbook – Janet Meany and Paula Pfaff
Handwoven Design Collection #8 – Just Rags
A Weaver’s Book of 8 Shaft Patterns – Carol Strickler
In Sheep’s Clothing – Nola Fournier and Jane Fournier (spinning)
I imagine none of you will object to adding the first 3 to the library. We touched
on considering taking non-weaving books out of the library due to space limitations,
so the last one is a “maybe”, IMHO. But it looks like a spinning classic.
I don’t really want to take the time to list the other 20 or so books and booklets.
Any suggestions as to how we decide which ones should go in the library?
Perhaps at the next meeting, a volunteer (Leah? our next librarian?) could
review them and add any others they felt were valuable to the “library
donation” pile, and then I’ll sell the rest on Polly’s behalf?
