The Guild's Library

Peter is the man to see if you would like to borrow a book. Please see him, too, if you think a book ought to be included in the library. My own suggestion is Steve Coleman's other books in his series, because, apart from being an excellent read by an excellent writer (nobody writes quite like him!), they offer exceptionally good advice on many aspects of ringing.
