Hi and welcome to the AWRC Library.


On this page, you will find a selection of books and videos available for AWRC members to borrow for $1.00 each.


If you see a book you would like to read the first step contact


If available, the book(s) will then be posted out to you together with an invoice for the items & outgoing postage cost. You can keep the items for 4 weeks (with the possibility of one 4 week renewal). Before the end of the 4 week period you should return the items with complete payment & your next request (if any).


If you are a frequent participant at club days, or live locally, then other more convenient pick-ups/returns can be arranged. We aim to please.


In the unlikely event of a book in your care getting damaged or lost you will be expected to pay for a replacement.


The books are not owned by the club, but by members who have put their books forward for other members to read and enjoy. The library runs on trust and dedication. If you would like to loan some of your books to the library, please contact
