CFUG Book Library

Welcome to the Twin Cities CFUG Library!

The library contains technical books that you can read and return. Most have been donated by our publishing sponsors or from our CFUG members. You may check out 2 books at a time for 4 weeks.

Getting started
Browsing the library is open to all. You can limit the title list by clicking on the category buttons such as "ColdFusion" or "Java". In order to checkout a book, you must login to the site to enable this feature.

Clicking the "Book Info/Reviews" button provides you with detailed info about the book, often a link to Amazon for further info, plus any reviews submitted by CFUG members.

Checking Out a book
After you have selected a book, click on the Checkout Book button. The book you requested will be listed on your Request List. This list will let you know if the book you requested is available or, if it is not available, what your wait time would be for the selected book.

  • Now - Book is available (no one else has it checked out).
  • Short Wait - Book is due back from another member soon.
  • Long Wait - Book is not due back for a long time. It may be a few months before you get your hands on it.

    *** PLEASE NOTE: We will send you an email telling you to attend the next CFUG meeting to pickup your book. Please reply to this to confirm that you will be there to get the book. This helps so we don't have to carry the entire library collection to the meetings, but instead only those books that members plan to pickup.

    Reviewing a book
    On the main page select the book you would like to review, then Click "Book Info/Reviews". Next Click "Submit Review". Complete the form on the Review page and Click "Submit Review". The Librarian will approve your review and post it. You must be logged in before you can use this feature.

    When you order a book you will receive an email letting you know that your request was received. Once you pickup the book at CFUG, you will receive another email and your book will show up on your Checkout List. Emails will be sent if you are late in returning a book.

    Book orders will be filled on a first come - first served basis.

    If you have any questions, please email the librarian at
