I am not quite ready for assisted living, but am having to consider retiring before long as church librarian--more than 25 years under my belt, plus 5 years in a university library system! I am interested in what has interested younger people into becoming church librarians, so I can use your ideas to attract younger ones onto my library staff. The ones my age would like to help, but have my problem with encroaching age. I am so glad you are getting involved with your libraries--may your numbers increase! Would be glad to share with any of you.
I'm 29, and have been running my church's library for 7-8 years; it started when I was asked to put "a few new books" into the computer system, and snowballed from there until suddenly I was in charge. My family had recently come to the church, and I think the older lady who had been doing all the work had moved to assisted living shortly before that. I have always loved reading, and anything to do with books, so it's been a joy for me; but I feel that I could have done with a lot more information and advice especially in those early years!! I've got a fairly generous budget, a terrific group of pastors who are willing to review books and offer suggestions if asked and are just grateful for what I do the rest of the time, and I feel a great sense of responsibility for making sure things are done well. I'm excited about this site and the upcoming EQUIP program, hoping to learn a lot!
