Carolyn, I see that Jackie Harris has responded to your question - so she will be a terrific help to you!  I just wanted to ask where you are located in Virginia?  The Virginia Baptist Library Association has regional "mentors" who will be happy to visit your church library and help you.

Jackie Harris asked about the fall conference of the Virginia Baptist Library Association held at my church, Temple Baptist in Newport News. (We missed you, Jackie!) Our library team was quite pleased with the turnout (a total of 80 folks participated during the 2-day conference). We heard comments about the good food, great instructors, important discussions and topics. Vendors of library supplies and other individuals donated some lovely gifts for door prizes which added to the fun. I hope everyone went home renewed in spirit to do the ministry of church library work.

Maxine, What a true blessing you are to my heart! Sitting here in rainy Virginia like a gloomy-gus and your smiling face appears on my computer screen, praising the Lord! With your permission I will print what you've just said and have Jewel Barger (our new president) read it to those in attendance at the conference at Temple. Fred W will not be with us - something about family and Hawaii - can you imagine such a thing?! Always good to hear from you and look forward to seeing you at Ridgecrest.

My big question is--How many of our VA group will be joining me at Ridgecrest in March? That's what I want to know! Hallelujah! Gloria deo! Sing a new song to the Lord, our God! Our Redeemer! Our Rock!
I hope and pray that we will have a huge showing! At your fall meeting at Temple Baptist Church, Newport News, please be sure to make the announcement and be sure Fred Walls, our pres. gets the word out! I have been asked to tell Esther again! and to do a mini-workshop! This is a Big Event! Our first one in several years! Let's all support Morlee in this effort, for she has kept us afloat with help from the Board, and all the great people who have devoted themselves to keeping church library work where it belongs in the scheme of things! We are giving all the praise to the Lord, first of all, then to all of these who have their spiritual ears attuned to His Spirit and then act in obedience to his Word. We know that He tells us to study to show ourselves approved unto God;workmen who do not need to be embarrassed. He tells us also that if we lack wisdom we can ask and He will give freely and does not scold us for asking! I will not give the quotes for you all know these verses--the main thing is to lisen and obey! It is a great fellowship that we have in the library network. I want to be going crazy with all the big Virginia hugs I'll be getting at R.C.!!!I will be 92 if God allows this venture with Him! I wouldn't even think of planning such a thing without knowing for sure that it is His will that I walk out in faith and serve Him as long as I draw a breath! Love to each and greetings in the name of Jesus to all in attendance at the fall meeting there Oct. 15th. I notice you have a great roster of instructors and fantastic workshops lined up! Wow! Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Mackie

Is this the way to join? I consider myself a member of this group since Iam past president and always faithful member! The fact that I now reside in TX has no bearing on the fact that I consider the church librarians of VA my first point of contact with this org. and so what do you need?
