Prairie Star members have free access to the guild library containing over 500 books, DVDs, and CDs. It is thought to be one of the largest collections in the Midwest. The library features topics for every level of ability and genre. New additions are made each year to accommodate the latest trends of interest to quilters. Recently, these include “modern quilting”, English paper piecing, applique and art quilt techniques. The collection also has many fiction books with quilting themes.
The library is open to members at the monthly daytime and evening guild meetings, with a couple of exceptions depending on the meeting schedule. Items may be checked out for one month. Suggestions for new titles is encouraged. Materials checked out can be renewed in person, by phone, or email. A fine will be charged for late returns.
The library database can be viewed on the computer at home or at guild meetings. Library Thing, a web based service, allows author, title, and subject searches to be done.
Please read the “Search Tips” link. It will give information about how to search the database. Many of your questions should be answered.
