The Library

The current library list is shown below – members can borrow books free of charge. The Library is open at all Willingdon Lecture Meetings.

This list shows all EAS library books available for members to loan. Any specific book may be requested by emailing the librarian with the title or code on or on meeting sessions when they will be issued if available. The following general loan policy applies:

All EAS paid-up members may borrow and return books from the library on meeting nights. The maximum expected period of loan is three months and each loan will be automatically renewed at each subsequent meeting, unless returned. On the fourth renewal period, loans will be considered as ‘overdue’ and should be returned as soon as possible. There are no charges for overdue books but members are expected to comply with this arrangement. On initial loan, each subsequent renewal and on return, an email will be sent from to the lender to advise on the status of each book they have loaned. Overdue books will be similarly notified. Any queries concerning loaned books may be addressed on meeting nights or by emailing the above address.
