Kenya Quilt Guild Library Policies

Beginning in January 2012, the Kenya Quilt Guild Library offers two options for Guild members to check out books:

  • Pay KES 1,000/= in advance.  Take out two books per month free of charge.  Want a third book?  Either wait until the next month or pay KES 100/= for every additional book.  If you use the library a lot, this is the best option for you.  At KES 1,000= per year for 20 books, each book rental costs only KES 50-=, and each book over 20 costs only KES 100/=.
  • Pay nothing in advance.  Then, pay KES 200/= per book.  If you seldom or never use the library, this is the best option for you.  You will pay KES 200/= for each book rental, but if you take out only 1 or 2 books per year, the total cost will be far lower than if you pay the subscription fee and then fail to check out books.  If you check out 5 or more books within a year, the subscription fee will be better for you.

This policy has been implemented to reduce library management and paperwork as well as to encourage members to use the library more.  And remember:  All fees you pay help us acquire new books for your reading pleasure.  Take advantage today!
