Choir Library 
We\have a range of music scores for hire or purchase.This document outlines the loan and return system of all music scores/books issued by the Choir Library.

Function of the Choir Library
The Choir Library facilitates the supply of music scores to all choir members, for use throughout rehearsals and for the concerts. The majority of the music issued is hired by the Library from external sources.

Allocation of Music Scores
Scores are issued at the 1st and 2nd rehearsals for an upcoming concert. Early arrival is recommended as the distribution process does take time and queues are likely. It is also equally important for rehearsal to start on time. 
There are usually additional scores available for anyone who joins rehearsals at a later date.

Loan of Music: Expectations
The choir member is responsible for all scores lent to them.
It is expected that:
• Any notes or marks written in the scores are made as lightly as possible, using a ‘soft’ leaded pencil.
• The choir member is accountable for safe return of music/scores to the library, in the best possible state, after use. 
• As a minimum courtesy, all markings made by the choir member are erased from the scores before return, except for the choir library loan number. This will have been written into the score by a member of the library team, when issued.
• The cost to replace any music that is lost or damaged will be borne by the choir member.

Return of Music
All scores will be collected at the next rehearsal following a concert i.e. the 1st rehearsal for the next concert. This allows time for any markings to be erased before return of music.
Every choir member will be required to ‘sign-in’ their music/scores upon return.

If a choir member is unable to attend this 1st rehearsal or is not performing in a concert then they can either:

• Return the music in person to the librarian before the concert date.
• Entrust return of scores via a choir colleague – who will sign the music in, on their behalf
or
• Notify the librarian in advance (e.g. in person or by telephone or e-mail) advising of the alternative music return date.

NB: There will be a fine of £1.00 per week charged for all late return of scores i.e. those scores that are not returned at the 1st rehearsal after a concert, or where the librarian has not been contacted in advance.

If music is returned extraordinarily late then the choir member may also be charged for any penalties or additional postage costs incurred by the Choir library for late return of books to their lender.

For further information, please speak to the Choir Librarian, who is very approachable.
