FMBG Library Items & Social Reading

Most of the books, CDs, DVDs, magazines, reports etc. listed below are available to FMBG Members for borrowing at meetings or from the Depot.

While there is no loan period established for Library Items or Social Readings, loans will be chased up after a reasonable period (as determined by the management committee). Note that there are some reference materials which are Not For Loan and/or Not To Be Removed From The Depot/Gardens. Library items need to be obtained via the Librarian (or Authorised Assistant) and need to be signed out using the Library Items folder. Social readings may be borrowed from the depot on an honesty basis. (Please sign books out using the Social Readings folder, stored on the Social Readings shelf). Items not listed below (or in the Library or Social Readings folders) should be referred to the librarian or committee members before being removed from the depot. New Magazines and other material left on the table during work days may be read at the depot before being registered with the library for loan.

Most items can be collected from the depot when the nursery is open, or from the Monthly meeting by arrangement.

Please contact either Librarian (below) to arrange for items you are interested in to be available at the Depot or the Monthly Meeting. Also contact either Librarian if you have any other query relating to the Library.
