Wellspring Community - Library Thing Catalogue

Wellspring Community - LibraryThing Catalogue 

Many of us have books of relevance to Wellspring that we may wish to share with others. To encourage the sharing of resources we have started a Wellspring catalogue on the LibraryThing website.

Clicking on the title of the book will show you the collection the book resides in, and who you contact if you wish to borrow the book. Loan periods and methods of delivery will be negotiated between you and the collection holder.

If you have books you would like to share within the Wellspring Community on LibraryThing please contact either:t Neil Holm or Helen Kilborn for instructions.
