Club Library Contents List Now Available On-Line

The Club library cart has been repaired and we have gone through all the contents to see whats there and what isn't. Unfortunately not all the books that were listed on the old catalog sheet are there anymore, so any books that were no longer there have been eliminated from the catalog.   Members, please check your personal library to see if you may have forgot to return a book and bring it to the next meeting and we will make sure it gets back on the list. 

I thought it would be nice to have a way for you to be able to view the catalog at your leisure.  Now, you can see exactly what's available and what you might like to check out before you come to the meeting. The books are first organized by category, then in alphabetical order within each category.  You'll know exactly what you want and where it's located in the cart. Just remember to fill out the card inside the book and place it in the box provided inside the cart. We have a very good variety of books. If you haven't explored them before I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The cart will be available during the monthly meetings

Here are the books we have available, along with some additional information. 

Happy Reading!
Jeannine Weiner (Librarian)

See you next year!

Thanks to everyone who attended this years Gem and Mineral Show at Western New Mexico University.    The University did a good job to make us welcome.

  Overall, most of our vendors were happy with their sales, reports Karen Blisard the Vendor Chair.   Because many of our vendors use bright lights to showcase their products, Karen said, " I was really worried about the power situation, but thanks to everyone's cooperation there were no problems.   Everyone enjoyed the vendor dinner on Sunday night - we do know how to put on a spread."   Many thanks to all the club members who contributed food for this wonderful event.   Many vendors report from year to year that we are the only show that provides this to our vendors.  

Many thanks to all the Club Members, Vendors, and Visitors for making the 2015 Show a great event!
