Hi Folks, Remember me from last year and my african culture
notebook. well My husband finally bought that much needed scanner,
however I don't know how to use it and my african cultural resources
in the 2" notebook, is about 20 pages long. please be patient. I
will jot a few things down. I also have filmstrip #'s but they go
with the portland OR school library, I guess the names would be the
same though.
