>Rick asks about old 16 mm films.

Last year, we were force to get rid of the bulk of our 16mm film
collection. We offered them to the public libraries in the state as a
"permanent loan." The ones no one wanted ended up in state surplus.

Last week, one of our patrons told me he saw them over at surplus minus the
cases. I guess they sold the cases but not the films.
