MVBA Bridge Library Announcement
Georgia Banziger and Beth Grismer worked on the library, and will be doing more. As of now, the 4 shelves on the left side, behind the clear door, have been alphabetized by author. All of these have been stamped” MVBA” and have pockets with cards in the back. If anyone wants to check one out, your name and the date taken out on the card, and give it to the director. We hope people will keep them only 1 month or less. The MVBA Board has committed to buy $300 worth of books per year and have just added this amount for 2016. The right side of the bookcase has a “Reference” shelf and 2 “Historical Books” (still in the setup process) shelves; these are for perusing only and cannot be checked out. (Also any MVBA Bridge Books that players have at home should be returned to The Director’s Desk for the next few weeks so we can make sure they are stamped “MVBA” and have pockets) Thank you. 4/26/16
