We had a great spring conference here in Lynchburg, VA this past weekend. Morlee Maynard and Carolyn Walker from LifeWay and Allison Maynard from Book Systems along with some of our own members did a great job leading the conference. We learned all about Disciple Making Centers and how to take that back to our own libraries to put it into action both personally and within the ministries of the church.
We had 42 people to attend, representing 30 churches but we also out of those numbers had 11 new people who have never attended a library conference before. We had people not only from VA but NC, PA, OH, TN and GA. It was great to see such excitement about church library work and all the new friendships that were being made.
If you weren't there you truly missed a great conference and weekend of learning. Mark your calendars for the Fall Conference, November 9 &10, 2018, Libraries: Diamonds in our Midst. in Richmond, VA. Information is under the events tab as well as our website www.vacla.org and our Facebook page Virginia Church Library Association.
We have received your membership and payment, so you are a VCLA member. We welcome you as new member and so glad you found both us and this website. Looking forward to meeting you and your wife at the spring conference. Once you find a photo you would like to use of yourself, just go to your profile on here and upload the photo.
Just got my papers from the Lodge, so I guess that means I am officially accepted as a VCLA member? Hope so. Anyway, will find a photo that shows my good side, and post it?? Or send to somebody?? Anyway, glad to join. Did not know this organization existed until Kathy, church secretary, put the flier on my podium. I think it came from MTBA office, but not sure. Have a few pics of our (library)/classroom. Will bring to conference. Ya'll have a blessed day now.....Ron.....
We are excited to have added the group Big Island Bluegrass as the entertainment for our 60th Anniversary Kickoff Celebration on Saturday night. You won't want to miss this great conference and enjoy a fun evening after a day of learning.
