Email from Julianna Baucant:
Our church librarian, Nettie K. passed an article around for all library volunteers to read. The article was titled, 'Important Relationships: Church Librarians and Children.' It changed my perspective on things. The author states how the librarian always the same where the Sunday School teacher is unpredictable. This is so true in my church.
I am currently training under Nettie because she has stated to me that the time is getting near that she may not wake up and she wants someone to be able to take over our library. I am in awe of her wisdom and dedication to this ministry and want to soak in all the information I can so when the time comes I can be successful with this important ministry.

From my CLN observation point, the number 1 reason church libraries are closed by church leaders is because the library team leader failed to prepare someone to become the leader when he or she suddenly steps aside. Let's discuss how to select your successor and how to equip that person to continue the library ministry without a pause. Congratulations, Nettie K., for implementing a transition strategy that is working well. We are all in awe of your wisdom and dedication.
