Lending Library

Gold Country Writers maintains a Lending Library of books donated by our members.

Many of our authors donate a copy of their published books to our lending library.

The following is a list of members and the books they have donated.

These books are available to borrow at the 10 a.m. meeting at the Rose Room, on the first Wednesday of the month.

We encourage published members to donate a copy of their book to the Lending Library!

We also welcome members to borrow these books.

Get to know what your fellow members are writing!

The Lending Library is maintained by GCW member Kathryn Sheilds.
