We're very excited! Dwight just learned that the NAFEX Board of Directors has agreed to send the NAFEX Library to our New Mexico Fruit Explorers group. Dwight (and probably Pat?) are making arrangements to go to Arkansas to pick up the materials from the current curator.
The NAFEX library contains hundreds of references about fruit--books, journals, research materials--many out of print and/or rare. The materials were available to members for a small loan fee. The library also held back issues of the NAFEX publication, Pomona. Much of this material is now available online, and the Board was reluctant to continue with the library, but Dwight persuaded them that such a collection of print materials should not be broken up.
