Books for County Libraries

BOOKS FOR COUNTY LIBRARIES

In keeping with the mission of our organization, funds from membership and the convention are used to purchase informative quilt books for County Libraries to benefit members and potential members of the Wyoming State Quilt Guild.

Tauna Leathers is the current Committee Chair for the Books for County Libraries.  She invites recommendations for books and those suggestions are brought before the WSQG Board for approval.

Book plates are placed in the books to note that they have been donated by the Wyoming State Quilt Guild.  Books are delivered by the five Regional Directors and the libraries are responsible for distributing or lending them to the branches.
