The guild library is a valuable and growing resource for members, featuring the latest polymer clay-related publications and many older reference books by polymer clay experts and innovators. The library is supported by guild funds, book donations, and funds received from overdue fines and rental fees. Acquisition suggestions from guild members are welcomed.
