California Blacksmith Association
The CBA maintains a library of books, videos and DVD’s on the subject of blacksmithing and related topics. A CBA member may request materials by mail. Please note that materials are ONLY available by mail at this time.
Please contact Carol de Maintenon, the librarian with suggestions for materials you would like to see added to the collection.
CBA Library Policy
Only CBA Members in good standing with their dues paid up and no outstanding library infractions may borrow materials from the library.
CBA, at this time, is waiving the loan fee of $5 and will cover the cost of shipping to the borrower. The borrower is responsible for return postage. The loan period is 15 days but please return the materials as soon as possible so another member may have their use. We no longer charge a security deposit but please bear in mind that you are responsible for the replacement cost of any materials lost or damaged while on loan to you. These books and videos are very specialized and thus many are quite expensive. Members with outstanding library fines may not be able to register for CBA functions or renew their membership.
Please fill out this form and submit your request for borrowing books & DVDs.
