May 2018: "The most used church library in the NESynod".

Posted by Mark Donahue on Thursday, May 31, 2018 @ 11:49 AM

Summer’s here!  Going on vacation? Take a good book along…or a few.  Summer is a good time to read through an entire series. (Series are located on the sanctuary wall of our Library.)  It’s also a good time to keep up with what Pastor Tim is reading. (His current book interests are listed on a poster in the Gathering Area.)   And when you’ve finished a good read, the Library would love to hear your thoughts.  (Post a review on the bulletin board or write an article for the Tidings.)

Our Library has been dubbed the “most used church library in the NESynod, no doubt due to our location.  While most church libraries find themselves relegated to a back Sunday school room, we’re right out front where we can’t be missed.  Through the week as I sort and file check-out cards I notice this: on Monday morning the cards bear the names of HT members; on Tuesday through Sunday the names switch mostly no non-church members.  Folks from every group that meets at our facility—choruses, the bridge group, AA, etc.—check out the books as well.  It pleases me.  It means the Library is a ministry to the greater community.  When the Library Team first started noticing this, we were worried that books and DVDs would get “lost,” spirited away never to be returned.  After talking about it, the Team’s decision was that a certain amount of loss was part of the price it would be willing to pay in exchange for a book helping someone.  Guess what—almost nothing disappears.

A few quick items:

  • Watch for a “weeds” sale soon.  Remember that proceeds from these go towards books for the isimani Library.
  • No more movie nights until September.
  • Suggestions for ordering books and DVDs are always welcome.  Write your requests out on the bulletin board.
  • Watch for news about a book discussion group soon.
