ABOUT MEMBERSHIP OF THE LoA
Membership is available to all who live within a reasonable distance of the Library, being that distance which allows them easily to return books. Special arrangements may be made by the Trustees on application from scholars living at a greater distance.
There are three categories of membership:
Life Membership is automatically granted to any benefactor who donates five hundred pounds or more at any one time. It is also awarded gratis to local scholars of particular eminence. It provides the same facilities as Annual Membership.
Annual “Research” membership costs thirty seven pounds per year and runs for one year from the date of joining. It allows the member to borrow up to six non-reference items concurrently for up to three weeks each, and provides four newsletters per year.
Concessionary “Student” membership is available to those who are happy to pay less for a more limited borrowing facility ( 3 books at a time) at a reduced rate of twenty four pounds per year.
New Distant Membership is available to people living outside our catchment area of about 20 miles radius. Distant Membership costs £37 per year and a £25 refundable deposit is required. Distant Members can borrow up to three books at a time.
Books can be Loaned for three weeks at a time by members . Members can extend the loan period for another three weeks at a time by emailing the librarian with their request and including their membership number. The absolute maximum period for a loan is twelve weeks. Emails for loan renewals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact the Library to inquire about membership.
