I am sorry that you at having to deal with such a misunderstanding of why a church needs a library. It is true that books don't save souls! Only the Holy Spirit can do that! But all of us who have worked in church libraries…"
My dear Pat, it is so good to welcome you to this CLN. It's fun to see so many questions from so many different backgrounds. We can ask questions, try an answer, enjoy the pictures, etc. from so many librarians from so many places.
So glad that you joined us. Miss seeing you so much!
