O.N.A. Book and Audio-visual Lending Library


There is a good sprinkling of reference books and recent catalogues that can be borrowed free-of-charge (all you pay for is postage). Contact Book Lending Librarian Christopher Boyer, 519-884-4788 or e-mail Librarian.


We have an extensive audio-visual (AV) lending library available to both individual members and club members. Contact Audio Visual Lending Librarian (available only evenings and on weekends) or e-mail Club Services Chair.

From time-to-time, announcements are published in the ONA Numismatist about the availability of VCR tape programs that can be borrowed by members. The nominal $5.00 charge covers handling and postage one way, with the borrower prepaying the return postage. This fee applies whether one or a quantity of programs are borrowed.

Our AV lending library includes numismatic programs on a wide variety of topics. Many of our tools are now converted to CDs and DVDs and have been given to the local coin clubs to serve their members, so ask your local club regarding library access and benefits of membership in their club.

 Special Benefit to ONA Member Clubs 

Thanks to the generosity of the London Numismatic Society, the O.N.A. can offer, at no charge, over 50 PowerPoint presentations to O.N.A. member clubs. Each presentation is suitable for a program at a club meeting. Topics include Canadian decimal coins, tokens and paper money, world coins and paper money, and London Ontario items of interest.

All the presentations and text files are available online for download here.

While the presentations are best viewed using a digital projector, they can be shown to a smaller group just using a laptop computer or good-sized monitor. The text for each presentation has to be printed out beforehand so it can be read out loud as each slide is shown.If the PowerPoint programs will not load properly, contact the O.N.A. Club Services Chair.

Each club that takes advantage of this offer should thank the London Numismatic Society and especially Ted Leitch who chairs this project! They have unselfishly provided several years of programs and show the benefit of co-operation and of belonging to larger organizations such as the Ontario Numismatic Association.
