BOOKS

Here's how it works. If you see a book that you would like to borrow get in touch with the owner. The owner of the book is shown in parentheses after the book listing. The owner of the book will bring the book to the next club meeting or make some other arrangement to deliver the book to the borrower. The borrower will be able to keep the book until the next meeting. The borrower will bring the book to the next meeting or make some other arrangement to return the book to the owner. Simple. Right? Of course, but we all know that even simple things can go wrong. What could go wrong?

  1. More than one person wants the book
    First come first served.
  2. Owner needs the book themselves
    The owner of the book might have a need of the book and is free to take the book "out of service" at any time. If there is no waiting list, no problem. If there is a waiting list the owner, as a courtesy, should notify those who want the book as to when it might be available.
  3. Extend the checkout time
    If there is no waiting list the borrower needs to work out a 1 meeting extension with the book owner. If there is a waiting list the borrower needs to bring the book back. No extension.
  4. Book not returned on time
    Public shaming at the next meeting and a fine of $5 for every missed meeting. The $5 goes into the club treasury.
  5. Book has minor damage while checked out
    The borrower is shamed in public and fined $10 that goes to the club treasury and fined 1/2 the cost of a replacement book to go to the owner.
  6. Book is lost or sustains major damage while checked out
    Public shaming and borrower is fined $25 that goes to the club treasury and must work out a satisfactory replacement of the book with the owner. Some of these books are old and difficult to replace.
