Comment: "Please start to carry Quilting magazines here... I have to go to DeKalb but live in Sycamore where life offers more!"
Reply: It is nice to have a selection of magazines that focus on your interests at your own home library where you can sit and browse the back issues. At this time we don't carry a magazine on quilting or other needle crafts, and we are assessing our community's needs as well as our budget as we consider purchasing a subscription. That being said, the beauty of our membership in PrairieCat -- the 68-member library
group that shares materials -- is that you can easily place a hold on
items you want, including magazines, that are owned by other libraries.
These items usually arrive within a week and will be waiting for you at
our circulation desk. Our staff is happy to help you place a hold on the items you're looking for.
Our collection of quilting books can be found in the non-fiction section under 746.46 and if you have any suggestions for new purchases for that section, please let us know. These links to the Northern Illinois Quilt Fest and the DeKalb County Quilter's Guild might be of interest as well.
