Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Go On or Give Up'
"I understand your frustration. Just keep on keeping on. Constant promotion will pay off, but no matter what you do some people will just not use the library. I see so many people passing by our library on Sundays who never even set foot in here to…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Mitford'
"We finally decided to use Mitfordbooks.com and then go to Jan's Books to get the series titles and numbers. You are right it is very inconsistent when you start looking around."

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Cassette Tapes Withdrawal'
"We have a wonderful cassette tape collection that is virtually untouched now. A lot of great books on tape and fiction too. Then there are tapes of most all our church services from the 1970's thru the 90's.…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'October is Church Library Month'
"Linda A small town gives you a great advantage in promotion. You can reach most everybody in your local newspaper and The Roundup. For the open house in addition to refreshments I would display the most recent and popular titles and be ready with…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'October is Church Library Month'
"Well I must confess I have not heard of Church Library Month. I like the promotion. An open house sounds like a great idea. How would you advertise this to the public?"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Appropriateness of Movie for Church Library'
"Ann, we add many movies to our collection that are not strictly faith based but they must not contain unacceptable language, sex, or other inappropriate material. We want these type of movies to be educational and/or family oriented. We have…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Library Newsletter'
"Debbie, we put out a library newsletter ten times per year. We email it to all those on the active church mailing list plus put it out in the library. We get a great response to it. We actually get too good of a response because everyone wants the…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Paid positions'
"The Lord has blessed me with a full time job since 1989 as church library director. I have the luxury of being in a very large church that makes this possible. There is also one other full time staff member and a part-time staff member along with…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'How would you deal with this borrower?'
"Oh my!!!  If it is any consolation you are not alone in this problem. We have similar difficulties all the time. These patrons  know exactly what they are doing and apparently have no conscience about it. Quite simply it is theft and…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Weeding of VHS Tapes'
"My struggle is not what to do with the old VHS tapes but how to replace them. Many of them are still relevant and would be used if on DVD. It is too costly to replace all of them immediately so should we dispose of them anyway?  Eventually we…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'magazines'

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Book Systems Atrium Program'
"We've been using Atrium for six years now and we love it. Used Concourse before that from Book Systems too. As with any new system it takes some learning to get used to it but once it is mastered it is great. There is a yearly service…"

Paul, it's good to have you people in Cordova to join this network.  It was also good to be in your church for your library conference.
