Wishlists are good, and we have a few good books in the stack already.

I think categories should include:
Woodworking
Electronics
Computers
Metalworking
Physics
Business -(Yes business, maybe not alot of them, but still)
Video / Audio production

What else?

Thanks Paul! BTW everyone, last night they were in the classroom. Not sure though if that's where our library will eventually reside.

I think we could use some book shelves in the future, I image we will amass a decent amount of books.

Paul is right, and I have seen a couple on craigslist for free that I have not even looked at yet. I have been waiting for a little more "definition" of our space before I started grabbing stuff that will prove usefull.

(I also see need for a seating area, rather than just all gather around in the Kitchen/office. So maybe a couple gently used couches, and even coffee type table down near the classroom may work.)

So I will pick up when I can a decent bookcase, and maybe even a media case (our library should have in it a copy of Tim's performance from Saturday, maybe some other training type video, audio and such.)
