Virtual Lending Library

Welcome to Gaia Community's Virtual Lending Library!

This program connects Gaia members' personal libraries so that we can all benefit from each others' collections. It also improves the accessibility and visibility of Gaia's physical library. Below, you'll find the procedures for Lending and Borrowing, as well as for the actual exchange of books. This program is a member benefit.

Gaia Community also has a physical library of books that belong to the community itself. These books reside in the librarian's home until Gaia finds a permanent home. However, we are hoping to expand the variety of books available in our library, so if you have books that you'd like to donate, please contact the librarians, Aubry and Amanda. Gift-in-kind forms are available for tax purposes.

We use LibraryThing to catalogue our virtual lending library. Here's a sample:
