The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Guild has a small collection of books and magazines available to members for browsing and borrowing during our monthly meetings. The library opens at 7:00, 30 minutes before the start of each meeting. Books checked out are due at the next meeting.

View and search the catalog for the collection at Library Thing

The Guild currently has a subscription to the following magazines:
  • Interweave Knits
  • Knit N’ Style
  • Knitters
  • Knit Simple
  • Vogue Knitting

To borrow a book, simply take your book to one of the checkout computers where a library volunteer is stationed. It is our hope that we will be able to have 3 stations running up until the end of the break at the meetings on a regular basis to make the checkout process quicker. In order to make checkout faster, please have your Guild name tag on you so we can make sure the spelling of names is accurate in our system.

To return a book, place it on the library table in the plastic bin that is provided.

You can renew a book if the book hasn't been placed on hold. To check if the book is on hold, you can either ask one of our library volunteers, or you can check the status of the book yourself by checking on LibraryThing
Once you've determined that a book isn't on hold, a library volunteer can renew the book for you at one of the computer stations at the library table.

Books can be put on hold by speaking to a library volunteer in person on a meeting night, or by emailing Please provide the name of the book and your full name and we can put it on hold for you for the following Guild meeting.
As we don't always get a chance to go through all the holds, if you have placed a book on hold, please come to the library table at the meeting to check the status of the book.
