Library

A number of old books from the CSGB library.

Since we first started writing our reference books and publishing our magazines we have been keeping a copy of every one for the future. Even when wartime restrictions meant we could only produce our magazines to order we still managed to print one for the library. In later years, we have added to things by way of donations and purchases to cover books by other writers, and on subjects as diverse as cigarette packets, football cards, gum cards, postcards, and coffee-table style visual masterpieces, which truly demonstrate what a wonderful world the card world is.

Our library is an amazing and enviable resource which is available for use by members, non-members, the press and archivists. If you are not a current member of our society, but are working on a piece which does, or could, involve cards and would like to hear more, please email our librarian at: library@card-world.co.uk.

If you do fall in love with one of our own works, please don’t forget we also have a bookshop retailing all our current volumes. And members can advertise in our magazine for copies of older versions of our works, or for card related publications by other writers.

CSGB members can borrow up to two items from our library at a time. Loan requests should be made to library@card-world.co.uk.

Our books are loaned for one month at a time. Extension can be arranged by email the address above, but, as in all libraries, this depends on whether the book has been requested by another member.

Loaned books will come with a CSGB loan form, plus a return address label. Please keep the packaging safe as you will need to refund that postage and return the form when you return the book. To safeguard our stocks, recorded delivery postage must be used when returning books. Cheques are to be made out to CSGB, or we will accept the equivalent in postage stamps by prior arrangement.

Please note that if any book or item is lost, destroyed or damaged whilst in your possession you will be liable to pay compensation (amount decided by the Council). In order to preserve rarer, earlier, or larger books, the Librarian may agree, and sometimes prefer, to search for and provide information rather than loaning the publication. However, the member must understand such a request may take longer to accomplish.
