Access to our extensive lending library is reserved for clients only. To utilize it, a refundable membership must be purchased ($40) which serves as a deposit toward any loss or damage*. It is fully refunded when you are finished with your books and return them in good condition. Doula clients have free access to our library upon signing a contract of hire with either Bev Wein or Carissa Murray.
Books/videos may be checked out for 2 week periods, extending to a total of 8 weeks maximum, provided the resource in question has no outstanding requests.
Clients are welcome to borrow up to 3 books/videos at once, and return/exchange at any time before to the due date.
Please let us know prior to your appointment if there are any resources you are interested in borrowing, we will do our best to bring them with us if they are available.
If the book/video you want is currently lent out, we will place a request on it and notify you when it is returned.
We are always happy to accept donations for our lending library, if you have a helpful book that you don't need any more, just let us know!
Check back often, we are always adding more!
Asterisks: Books with one* we have read, and two** are our highly recommended. (Books without asterisks are those on our BIG stack of "to be read soon"!)
*Replacement Policy for lost or damaged items: If the product should be misplaced (considered so after 30 days overdue, or as reported) or severely damaged, the replacement fee (cover price unless otherwise noted) will be deducted from the responsible client's $40 membership deposit. If the product is worth more than the membership, we will charge the difference to the client's account. In order for a client to remain in good standing and able to continue to borrow resources from our library, the replacement fee must be settled and a full $40 membership repurchased. It is our discretion to change our membership policy at any time as needed and withhold membership from clients who misuse our services.
