Lending Library Pilot Launch

Members, we are excited to announce your branch Lending Library! You will discover a growing collection of editing-related books that you may check out online for pickup or delivery.

What’s in the library?

More than 50 printed books about publishing including style guides, reference works, writing memoirs, and graphic design titles. Donations to the collection are welcome. Please contact us here or by email if you have any works to contribute.

Who may borrow materials?

Only Editors Ottawa–Gatineau members may borrow books free of charge as a membership benefit.

How does it work?

Fill out the form in the Lending Library to select up to four books and a member of the branch executive will email you to make a borrowing plan. In the pilot stage, each loan will be handled on a case-by-case basis to ensure you have a suitable amount of time to access, read, and return your borrowed books.

Happy reading, editors!

Holiday Speaker Night: Book Conservation with Christine McNair

Join us on November 17 for our holiday Speaker Night on Zoom.

Writers might like to think that their writing is immortalized once on the page, but that’s only true as long as the page lasts. This year, our holiday speaker night will take us into the realm of book conservation. Book conservator and writer Christine McNair will discuss her work at the Canadian Conservation Institute, including some editorial marginalia from medieval manuscripts.

Our discussion will be followed by a game and social time to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Stick around after our amazing Speaker Night for a party! Trivia will include prizes from Octopus Books, Perth Chocolates, and Happy Goat Coffee.

Time: 6:30pm to 8:00pm EST
