Due to Covid-19, the Buyers Library is currently closed.
The Buyers Library
In 1966, William and Anne Buyers formed the Richard III Society of Canada. The Library was started almost immediately thereafter and has grown into a collection of more than 400 items. In 1986, it was decided to name this collection the Buyers Library.Donations are gratefully accepted, as the Society does not have the funds to make such purchases. However, please contact the Librarian before making a donation to ensure that the item will be suitable for inclusion in the Library.
The Library is provided for the benefit of all members in good standing. Items may be picked up at meetings in Toronto or vicinity, collected in person (please make an appointment first), or sent by mail to members anywhere in Canada. Some older books, marked by an asterisk * in the catalogue, are too fragile or valuable to send through the mail and special arrangements must be made to use these. Many of them are also available in modern editions.
Requests for items or appointments for visits should be sent to the Librarian at Librarian@richardiii.ca.
Both the number of items borrowed and the loan period is up to the discretion of the Librarian. Both depend upon how heavy the demand is for the items.
Postage must be paid both ways. Please do not send money when making requests but rather, note the amount from the stamps used on the parcel and enclose stamps (preferably) or remittance for the amount when returning the items.
Please return items securely wrapped against the hazards of the mail.
Do not mark the books or papers in any fashion.
Please do not repair books but point out faults to the Librarian when returning them.
Enjoy all the items the Library has to offer and borrow often!
