Borrowing slide/video programs from the SFMS Slide and Video Library

Your Club must be a paid member of SFMS

Ordering Slide Programs:

  • Submit your request to the Slides/Programs Committee Chair using the form below.

  • Give at least 30 days advance notice to the Slide Program Chair when requesting programs. This gives your club's Program Chair a chance to familiarize him/herself with the contents of the program when received.

  • List two alternate choices. (First and second choices may not be available.)

  • Give full name of your club, plus your name, email address, phone number, and mailing address where you can be reached.

  • Give the date the program is to be presented to your club.

After the Program has been presented.

  • Please return within 4 days.

Before wrapping the program for return to the SFMS, check:

  • Make sure video is rewound.

  • That all slides are accounted for.

  • See that all slides are in numerical order.

  • That all slides are facing in the same direction.

  • Script, and/or cassette, is enclosed.

  • Please do not correct script!!! Instead, put a note in box and the Slide Program Chair will make needed corrections.

  • Return address - include club name.*

  • Address to Slide Program Chair.*

  • Print "Library Rate" in lower left hand corner.*

  • Insure for $50.00! - It is more important that the slides be insured because if they are lost or damaged in the mail, they cannot be replaced.

Note 1) - Omit steps marked with (*) if return labels are used.

Note 2) - Many Postal Clerks are not familiar with "Library Rates". It covers material - including slides - being sent to or from non-profit educational organizations. If faced with this situation refer to: USPS Retail Mail, 170 Retail Mail Media Mail and Library Mail

Warning: when slides are left too long in projector they will buckle from the heat and come loose from the frame, thus destroying a program!!
