Library Corner - April 2020

News from the Library Corner

We hope you are staying healthy and practicing social distancing. Hopefully your time at home includes some fun sewing.  If you are cleaning and organizing your sewing space, please feel free to donate to the ACQ book fair any quilt books you no longer need. 

If you were at the March meeting, you heard that we now have 3 jigsaw puzzles (500 and 1000 pieces) that can be checked out by members.  These puzzles have pictures of beautiful quilts.

We would still love to get your input for new books that should be purchased for the library this year. We are looking for suggestions for recent books (published in 2019 and 2020).  Please email your suggestions to Mary Rogers (mary.c.rogers@outlook.com) and Ann Roman (annroman8858@icloud.com).  We will keep you posted of our progress.

Library Reminders:

  • Each month we feature a small selection of our library books for our members to peruse and check-out before the program meeting.  This selection changes each month.

  • A complete list of the books in the ACQ Library is available on the ACQ website by title, author and subject.  Find the Library section on the Members page. If you are interested in a particular title, please contact Mary or Ann.

  • Books can be checked out for up to 2 months.  

  • Please be sure to return books in the marked basket at the library table at the back of the room.

  • If you are a new ACQ member you may not realize that at monthly meetings several members donate quilting magazines.  These are free to members, so please be sure to check out the selection. These are located on a table close to the library table.
