Namron Lending Library

The Barony of Namron is pleased to offer a Lending Library for the members of its Populace!

How it works:

  • Look through the list of titles and find one or two that interest you. 
  • Email the Hospitaler to check availability and arrange for delivery.
  • Requests must be made by the last day of the month for delivery at the following Populace Meeting (which falls on the first Thursday of each month).
  • Your book will be delivered for you to enjoy until you return it at the next month’s Populace Meeting!

Please return the books on time so that others may benefit from the library, too. 

In the unfortunate event that a book is lost or damaged, we ask that you replace it, either with the same title or with something similar to maintain the diversity of our library topics.

We are sorry, but the library is not open for browsing, as it is held at a private home.

To request a book, or for questions, please email the Hospitaler.
