LIBROS Calendar

Guests are welcome to our meetings, but please note that for project-based programs, members will receive supplied program materials first. Guests are welcome to participate if there are extra materials.

Social hour is from 9:00 to 10:00, followed by our regular meeting, which begins at 10:00. Please be prompt for the class, as we will start right after the regular business meeting.

Programs run from August – June. There is no scheduled meeting in July.

We meet in Albuquerque (see Meeting Location to the right for details).

For All Programs

Free Table: Anything art related that you would like to clean out and share with the club is always welcome.  

Sale Table: We are starting a sale table available to members to sell small amounts of unwanted or used art supplies. This is not for finished art pieces, just an ongoing white elephant thing for those who may be cleaning out their studios year round. But please bring things in in small increments. We cannot accommodate a whole studio! 10% of sales shall be donated to LIBROS.

Show and Tell Table: We love to encourage sharing our current works. We have a talented group of people who work in all sorts of mediums that are pulled together in book or box form. Pieces don’t have to be finished. You can also bring things in to discuss for help or inspiration. We will start this portion of the meeting early so make sure to show up on time!

Please feel free to email or call Mita with any questions,

Don’t leave home without your bookbinding kit! Remember that many of our meetings are “hands-on” and the best way to learn new techniques is to try them yourself!

Debbie Finfrock is the current Librarian.

LIBROS has a collection of over 100 books, magazines, collaborative books, CDs, and DVDs for loan! There’s a wealth of information just waiting for you to use. We will have a few varied titles at each meeting for you to peruse and/or borrow. The charge will be $1.00 a month (payable upon check out) for ONE month. If you wish to keep your book another month, there will be an additional charge of $1.00, but you must return it by the time that month is over, or 2 months maximum in your hands. This is in consideration of your fellow LIBROS members.

When you peruse the list, you’ll be amazed at the breadth of the Bookbinding/Book Arts information available to you! Your rental fees go toward acquisition.
