Re: IRIS Books
At the Region 2 meeting in Albany NY, the archivist brought a first edition
of Dykes' book. It was wonderful but the woman in charge would not (of course)
allow anyone else to touch it, (she did not use gloves to protect the pages
from HER hands, tho) and only went through the pages one time, and in a small
room, it was not possible to view it well. I believe it belongs to the
Region. Other books owned by the REGION were mentioned, but not offered for
Perhaps the viewing of books could/should be addressed in future
REGIONAL meetings -- on another plant list, a woman talked about a share
table on which folks put their magazines, books, catalogues, newsletters from
outside the area which could be taken, borrowed, looked at. Sounds like a
great idea to me!! Could be an ongoing project for a club!!
Timber Press offers a specialprogram for clubs which might be a discount-- anyone looked into this program??
