Borrowing from the Library
At the Goulburn Valley Gamers' Guild, we believe that our games are meant to be played, not just to sit on the shelves. That's why we're excited to share that we're currently developing the backend functionality to streamline our game lending process. This will make it easier than ever for members to borrow games from our library and bring the joy of gaming into their own homes.
In the meantime, you can still browse our collection and request to borrow games. Here's how it works:
1. Browse our Collection: Visit our BoardGameGeek collection to browse our vast selection of games. From strategic brain-burners to light family games, we're sure you'll find something that catches your interest.
2. Request a Game: For now, library access is through our Discord server. Join up, say hello, and make sure you've been given access to the members-only areas.
3. Pick Up Your Game: We'll bring the requested game to one of our fortnightly game nights. Here, you can collect your game and take it home to enjoy. We just ask that you return it at the next game night so that others can enjoy it too.
Through these steps, we aim to ensure all our members can enjoy our library, even when we're not gathered for our regular game nights. We're looking forward to introducing the new lending functionality soon, but in the meantime, we hope you continue to enjoy our collection and the shared love for gaming that it represents.
Welcome to the Goulburn Valley Gamers' Guild's grand library! This remarkable collection is the heart of our guild, a testament to our years of dedicated gaming and the generosity of our incredible community.
From humble beginnings, our library has grown exponentially over the years. It all began with a few games brought along by our founding members, each box holding cherished memories of fun-filled nights and exciting victories. As our guild expanded, so did our library, enriched by the cherished contributions of our members. These individual donations, each one a testament to our members' generosity and passion, form the backbone of our collection.
Our growth, however, isn't solely due to our dedicated members. We've been fortunate enough to receive grants from our local council. This invaluable support has allowed us to diversify our library, purchasing games from all corners of the globe and catering to a wide range of interests, ages, and skill levels. This ensures that there's always something for everyone, whether you're a seasoned gamer or a novice just dipping your toes into the exciting world of tabletop gaming.
We're also incredibly grateful to have received donations from a number of Australian board game publishers and distributors. Their kindness and support have provided us with an exciting array of games, many of which are Australian designs or hard-to-find editions that give our library a unique edge.
Today, our library boasts an impressive and diverse collection of games. From timeless classics to the latest releases, simple family games to complex strategy games, our library has it all. We strive to make the library as accessible as possible, ensuring that every member of our guild can find a game that resonates with them.
Every game in our library carries a story, a piece of our guild's history. They symbolise the many friendships forged over a gaming table and the countless hours of joy we've shared.
The GVGG library is more than just a collection of games—it's a reflection of our shared journey, our collective love for gaming, and the bonds that hold our guild together. It's always open for members during our regular meetups and events. We invite you to explore our library, discover its treasures, and create your own gaming stories with us.
After all, who knows what adventures await you in the Goulburn Valley Gamers' Guild library?
