General Guidelines:

Study Notes/References -- Some of us make it a habit to make notes when we research a topic, which saves time when it becomes necessary to refresh memories or to add to our current information. It has been suggested that it would be helpful to have a page of study notes and specific references on each discussion topic. We will, therefore, have such a page to share with you for our discussion topic of oranges and yellows.

New Acquisitions -- As always, if you have any new acquisitions or family treasures you'd like to share (regardless of their color), bring them along.

Items You Have Questions About -- If you have a mystery item you have questions about, bring it in.

Things Not To Bring -- Of primary concern are items that might induce allergic reactions or cause damage to items others have brought to the meeting. Such things include (but may not be limited to): items that are heavily soiled, contain pests (believe it or not, more than one quilt has hosted thriving populations you'd rather not know about), are seriously musty or have mold, show recent signs of mouse nesting or have strong chemical smells (such as moth balls or other insecticides). If you have such an item and would like to have it discussed, please bring it along...but leave it in your car. We'd be delighted to look at it there for you.

Refreshments -- We'll have hot drinks available. Snacks to share always welcome. Bring a lunch if you think you might stay for the day. If you bring drinks along, those with tops/caps will keep spills from occurring.

Extra Books, Etc -- If you have duplicate books, magazines, etc that you like to offer to others, please bring. We'll have a separate table for them.

Share This Information With Others -- If you know of others that may be interested in our study group, please invite them to attend.

Distribution List -- If you are getting this information and would prefer not to, please just let me know.

Weather Warning -- If it looks as though the weather could be hazardous, please call me, the library 456-2400 or check your email to see if we are proceeding with the meeting. As much as we care for getting together, no one's safety or well-being is EVER worth putting at risk.
