    The board decided to sell the library to Mike Shadel. Was that ever done?

    I don't think it has been sold, but I think it was in the possession of Chris Berns who hasn't been to a meeting in a long time.

    Darn, just noticed today the club had a library and decided to ask about borrowing "The Fascination of Breeding Aquarium Fish" at the April meeting this Saturday. I looked up FairBear and found he hasn't been on the forum in 2 years. Then I came to this post, and found we don't actually have a library anymore. :-(

    The board did decide to sell the library to Mike and to auction off what he doesn't want so it has been resolved, it just needs to be done.

    If this is still not done and we want to continue to keep it since people are showing a interest in it again I am willing to take it over since I am attending on a regular basis again

    Diana, this might help answer your question, in the other post, about the library.

    Well I do think we should find out what we have left and resolve it either by putting the books in the auctions, donate them to a library or open it up again??? Dan can we put this very brief discussion on the February "Old Business" agenda??
