Our Library Shelves – some good and interesting info.
Your Librarian has always loved books
The Library is open from one hour before our Monthly Meetings on the 1st Tuesday of the month and during the coffee break.
The Library and Regalia Shop are also open from 3.00pm to 4:30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
Loans from the Library are for one month, from meeting to meeting, but may be extended by contacting the Librarian.
I log loans and returns and will monitor those who have kept any item for more than the standard one month.
I am usually very busy at the Meetings. If you have technical questions and need help in finding information in the Library, please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) well before our monthly gatherings and I shall attempt to find a reference for you.

The Librarian’s Selection of key books to read as an introduction for Members new to the MG Marque
Keep your grandchildren happy, and indoctrinate them into MG lore, by downloading the MG Colouring Book and print out line drawings for them to colour-in. This is reproduced with thanks to Judith Bertoglio-Griffin who printed a limited edition in 1976
The Book Reviews on the web often give more detail than is included in our articles in G-Torque as they have to be edited to fit the space available in the magazine.
We are happy to accept donations of books and magazines on any MG related motoring topic.
Following large donations of magazines, the Library now has stocks of the major MG and Classic Car mags. See the Librarian to book them out.
Check on the copies of the MG magazines we have in stock in the MG Magazine Catalogue

If any of the links do not work, please contact your Librarian and also let him know of any significant links which should be on the list. I shall keep the list reasonably brief but welcome really good new links.
We have compiled a list of traders who have supplied services or parts to our members in the past, and who have been recommended by them.
This list IS NOT endorsed by the MGCC Geelong but merely reflects individual member’s experiences.
If you are searching for suppliers of services or parts, our SECRETARY will provide the list to you on request by e-mail.
If you have good things to report and add to this list, please notify our SECRETARY.
