Fiction | NonFiction | Donate books

The GQA library is small but growing, and we lend out books at our regular coffee catch-ups on the first Saturday of the month.

We don’t bring the full library to each meeting, so if you want to borrow something, click the book, scroll down and fill in your details in the form at the bottom. We’ll bring the book for you.

We ask books are returned at the next meeting. But if you can’t just let us know via our contact page.
