  • Central Alabama would like to invite you to attend the Central Alabama Library Conference on Saturday March 4th. at Shoal Creek Baptist church in Deatsville, Al. Why not make plans to take a Road Trip to Wetumpka, Al where Ben and Erin filmed Home Town Take over and attend the conference that is about 12 miles away from Wetumpka, The Hampton INN located Inn Wetumpka is offering a reduced rate if you are attending this event.
  • Hi, I want to invite you to the Central Alabama Library Confernece on Sat. March 7th, for full info see events tab on this page. Morlee Maynard will be sharing about moving a library from the traditional concept to that of disciplemaker. 

  • 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!

  • I'm 24 years old, just graduated from Huntingdon College, Montgomery, Al with a liberal arts degree in Religion. I'm going on to pursue a MLIS degree to further the church ministry work within the methodist church. I'm looking forward to establishing contacts not only within methodism but beyond (especially for book trading- every book has an appropriate place, I hate to have to throw out books because they don't line up with my congregation's perspective, i'd much rather find them a good home in another church library).

welcome young people to the ministry

I'm not really young myself ( just think I am) but I am so glad to see young people getting involved in the library ministry now. Without some young blood the libraries in many churches would die. If there is ever anything that I could help you with please let me know. I do have a few young people working on my library team. they will be the future. Librarian?
