I am planning a open house to re-introduce the library to the church.  We have moved to a new location in the church and have updated.  I need some "open House" ideas. ThanksMarilynContinue

Do you have an e-reader??  Do you know where to find Christian e-books??  Have you used PowerPoint to promote your church library??  Do you know how to archive photos on the Internet??  Do you know how to create an e-newsletter??


If your answer is NO to some or all of these questions ... then, you need to attend the March 30 and 31, 2012 in Nashville, TN ... e-Church Library Conference.  For information go to the events section.

if you have already had the open house I hope that everything went well. We have found that Food, gifts and/or prizes get people just about anywhere. they don't even have to be big.

I would like to invite you to a workshop in Alabama. I'm not sure where you are located but we are trying to reach out to surrounding states. See the attached information. If you are unable to attend the one in May, you need to make plans now to attend the Al. State Library Conference in Sept. at Shocco Springs. the information, friends, fun and fellowship will be worth the trip. 2011Central%20Alabama%20Spring%20Library%20WorkshopinfoSched.doc

The location for the Memphis area is now Bartlett Baptist Church in Batlett. It is still on Sept. 11. Other locations remain the same: Crievewood Baptist Church in Nashville on Sept. 18, Lenoir City First Baptist Church on October 9 and Morris Hill Baptist Church in Chatanooga on Oct. 23.

Please help us spread the word to others in your area--church, school and public librarians. Others in your church would also benefit from the promotion classes. They won't be disappointed.
