Randy et al:

I sorta like my suggestion of a SEE ALSO@the library poster slogan =
(get it? SEE...view...uh...)

In any case, I'm hoping we can formally put this on the agenda to =
discuss in SF. It's clear that we're going to need a group to volunteer =
for investigating, coming up with a proposal to bring to exec comm, etc.

A grammatical suggestion: Instead of "VIEW", how about "LOOK" as in =
"Look
into your library". Or maybe "LEARN" as in "Learn at your library"? =
