Hi Jonathan.  Is the King Library a part of the Public Library system in San 
Jose?  I might have a friend who would be interested in coming.  How long 
will this meeting be and is it wheel chair accessible?

    Good luck with this organizational effort.  I know that there have been 
a couple of attempts to organize a San Jose chapter in the past.  Ken
