The librarian in Troop 301 would need to fully organize ALL the troop literature and not just the Mrit Badge Pamphlets. Literature needed by the troop is expected to be identified by the Libraian and fundraised for as needed. The troop clearly needs library items so a reasonable number of these items should be agreed to between the scout and the troop within two weeks of being appointed to the position of Librarian.
