The items in the WANOSCG library are held in two locations:

  1. The home of the current Librarian (These items are marked *** in the library lists or shaded yellow).
  2. The cupboard in the NE corner of the reception area of the Botanic Gardens and Park Authority (BGPA) main office.
    • Items in the cupboard are numbered (where possible) on the spine.
    • Items in the cupboard are arranged in numerical sequence.
    • Numeric and Author Lists of all library items are located in folders at the bottom of the cupboard and on the club’s web site.
    • Loan Record Cards are contained in a blue A5 binder on the bottom shelf of the Library cupboard. They are arranged in numerical item order as located on the spine of each item in the library. While items are on loan their record cards are held in the sleeve inside the front cover of the loan card binder.



The loan period is nominally TWO MONTHS, ie the period covered by three successive general meetings, except in the months of October and November, when items on loan must be returned before, or at, the November general meeting for audit purposes. However if members or associates have an urgent need for loan items between the November and March general meetings, special dispensation may be given, by arrangement with the librarian. At the termination of each Loan Period the borrower is required to return the Loan Item to the Library.

Repetition of a loan period by the borrower (individual or family) is only allowed if the item has not been requested by another borrower prior to or at the general meeting at which the initial or repetitive loan terminated and are limited to the period to the next general meeting. Repetitive loans periods of one month must be recorded by separate entries on the loan card.



The items in this library are only available for borrowing by financial members of WANOSCG or approved associates in accordance with the following rules.

  1. If the item is in the cupboard
    • Record your borrowing details (date out; your name; phone No) on the Loan Card in the blue A5 Loan Card binder.
    • Remove the Card from the binder and place it inside the sleeve of the front cover of the blue A5 Loan Card binder (THIS IS IMPORTANT).
    • When returning the item, record the date returned and your initials on the Loan card and then return the item to the cupboard and the card to the blue A5 binder.
    • If re-borrowing the same item for a second period repeat a) and c) (Following a second loan period (limited to 1 month) the item must be returned to the
      library and further re-borrowing of the same item by the same borrower is not allowed until one full loan period has elapsed).
  2. If the Item you wish to borrow is coded *** (retained by the Librarian due to space limitations) make arrangements with the Librarian to bring the item to the next general meeting.
  3. If the item is not in the cupboard and not coded ***
    • Check the status of the item that you wish to borrow by looking in the loan record card binder. If the item is “on loan” its card should be in the front sleeve of the binder.
    • If the item is overdue refer the matter to the Librarian or, if absent, the deputy.
    • If the item is missing, ie not recorded as “on loan”, please report this to the Librarian or, if absent, the deputy Librarian.

Suggestions for improving the content or management of the Library are welcome.
