Great idea Jenny!
I'd already thought of adding an index of all the books in the Sulgrave library to the new members only area, the question was how, hopefully now you'll be able to facilitate that I've asked Flick and she is trying to find out if a list already exists. I did note from the 1989 Herbal Review that on the council back then the Herb Society had a 'Librarian' maybe we need a volunteer Librarian that lives close to Sulgrave again lol! It would be wonderful to see what is in the library, currently its very vague, I will have a look and see if I have anything of use. but you won't want 20 copies of the same book in the library. The information service sounds superb to. In the 80's/90's the Herb Society offered A4 printed information sheets for a small price to non-members, maybe we can do that again assuming they don't still do it? We could make them available as free downloads to members in the members only area?
Hey just a thought, if we have a Sulgrave open day thin 2008, maybe people can donate their unwanted herb books to the Society. A bring and buy book stall can then be arranged at the open day selling the second hand books to help raise funds? Probably impractical but it's a thought?
