Thanks for covering for me Linda
It's the internet connection that's been poorly and its still playing up looks like we have to have a new dongle box but the engineer can't come until next Wednesday so I may be in and out of communication until then. Still at least I'm getting out into the garden and getting things done
Jane I'd be more than happy to take up your kind offer of your herb books, many thanks, if there are any duplicates then I'll put them in with the books that will eventually be sold at an event to raise funds for the Society. I'm contemplating the idea of having a members borrowing service for some books that are not so easy to obtain these days, I must stress this would be for any duplicate books we get and not the current catalogue. Members would have to pay the postage. The finer details aren't worked out yet, and of course I need the rest of council to approve the plan but it would be nice.
We've now got a laptop, printer and scanner for the library so I can begin archiving documents for the electronic archive, so many plans.... We've had a couple of donations of books recently, which I'll take a look at on my next trip to Sulgrave, there will be some news about the HS library in the next issue of Herbal Delights our electronic newsletter, so if you're not already signed up to receive it, then please get in touch, HS members only.
