The Guild's library — books to be sold
At their meeting in November the Committee decided to dispose of the books that are held in the Guild's library. It is not thought any of these books have been borrowed for many years: they are just taking up space. It would be far better if they were converted into some money, however small the sum, which would be put into the Bells Restoration Fund.
No reasonable offer for the books will be refused. Towers wanting a selection of books to be available to its ringers may find this an excellent opportunity to obtain a number at an advantageous price. Should there be an up-and-coming tower that is cash-strapped, the Committee may be minded to donate some of the books if a good case is made. Give it a try: you don't get if you don't ask!
Should there be a member or a tower that wishes to purchase the whole lot, get in touch asap. The books are listed below:-
