I was going to recommend The Church Librarians Handbook in a presentation I am doing on "Why Church Libraries?" When I went to get the link on Amazon, a new copy of the paperback is $87.80! Does anyone know where to get it cheaper? That seems like a mistake. There are some used ones for around $25, but still....
Are there any other books y'all would recommend for a new library starting up?
The two Lifeway books are available on Lifeway.com. Both are now in pdf format so that you can download and put in a binder for ease of use or spiral binding at an office store. The print edition was terrific to have but pdf is better than nothing.

A Classification System for Church Libraries
BTW, the Church LIbarians Network is the ongoing updating part of the Church Library Ministry Information Network.
I am thinking Susan is asking about another book that is titled The Church Library Handbook. It was published by Baker? I found it on Thriftbooks. Click here. Some of you will know more about this handbook than I do.
Yes. Sorry! However, the reason it jumbled in my mind is because I was thinking of your classification book, which is listed for $89.90!
The print edition is out of print hence the crazy price on Amazon. The pdf is linked in my reply above for only $8.99.
Thank you so very much, Morlee!
I want to quickly pipe in here & say "YAY!"
This book is awesome. We have a couple books in print. I refer to this book quite frequently & so I highly recommend it in any form.
I remembered Morlee's book on the Classification System for Church Libraries and that one is listed on Amazon for $90.00
