"Is your library new or in need of improvement?  In that case, I guess I could see the benefit of some long range planning.  Our library is well-established and running well, and we plan only a few months in advance (things like special…"

Debbie Dehart replied to the discussion 'How to catalog Bible audio books'
"I would do as you've described - separate them.  Yes, it's a lot of work, but I think it would be worth it.  And that way, more than one person could be using it at a time."

Winter Reading Challenge

At our church we're doing a Reading Challenge for adults - we're handing out bookmarks with sixteen categories of books, and participants have from Jan. 31-March 6 to read as many as they can (or want to! it's supposed to be fun, not pressure).
