Lean Agile Scrum Library

At the Scrum Breakfast in February, regular visitor Arnaud L'Hote proposed: "It would be really nice if we had a book-swapping library of relevant literature. You bring a book that you've read and can borrow a book that you haven't. Just one question to be answered: Where do the initial books come from?

I discussed the idea with Daniela Grecuccio, Manager of the SwissICT office, and she also thought it was a great idea. She immediately offered to order a suitable bookshelf and agreed to match any cash contributions one to one, up to a maximum of CHF 1'000. So if we raise 1'000, we have 2'000 to spend on books.

Today at the Scrum breakfast, we raised 1 book and CHF 290, so we have 580 Francs at our disposal. The bookshelf is on order, so hopefully next time, the library will be available!

Thanks to everyone who contributed!
