Library

The Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) has gathered over the years an impressive collection of resources for the use of its members for study, teaching aids or enjoyment. Books, newsletters from calligraphic associations around the world, and trade periodicals may be borrowed by members, either by appointment, or by securing through the Librarian at leave five days prior to a monthly meeting.

For members to borrow materials, note the call numbers below and email your request to the Librarian. The materials can be picked up at the next SCH meeting. The return deadline is one month. They may be returned at an SCH meeting or in care of any board member, or by arrangement with the Librarian. Please turn in all library items before the summer hiatus for inventory purposes.

For questions about our library resources or to borrow materials, please feel free to contact our Librarian on our contact page.
