* 8. Some seed lending libraries require borrowers to register for the program (having a library card does not guarantee access). Members have first choice of seeds and other benefits. Members are also required to have basic seed-saving training and save seeds for the following year. In the spring, after members have 'checked out' seeds for their gardens, any remaining seeds are made available to the public. What are your opinions of the membership idea? Check all that apply.

* 10. The library will need volunteers to package and sort seeds. Would you be willing to volunteer some time to help?
