The Queen City Balladeers Library of Resources and Member Exchange

Welcome to the Queen City Balladeers Library.  The purpose of the library is to make books, magazines, CDs, and other media available in order to educate, inform, and inspire QCB members.  These materials will include various media owned by the QCB and individual members, who have generously offered materials for lending to other members. The table below contains a list of resources owned by the Balladeers or by some of our members.  Here’s how it works.

  1. Browse the list below.
  2. If you find something you like, use the form below to make your request.
  3. If the resource is member-owned, our librarian will put you in touch with the owner so you can work out the details of the exchange.
  4. If the resource is Balladeer owned, it will be available for pickup at the Leo Coffeehouse on Sunday night.

For Sing Out and Acoustic Guitar magazines, please refer to the following links .  These links take you directly to the magazine’s website archives so you can review the content of various issues of each magazine.  You can then request that issue from the QCB Library.  With a few exceptions, we only go back to 1994 for Sing Out back-issues.  NOTE: The most current issue of either magazine  will not be loaned, so that more people may have access to it at the Leo Coffee House.

There is also a small collection of materials available for browsing and borrowing at the Leo Coffee House.  These are listed in the table below with the Leo as holder. Note: There are also some photo albums with photos from QCB past.  These are available for browsing at the Leo, but not available for borrowing.
