Our team is currently hooked on Charles Martin books. Just about all of us have now read his Murphy Shepherd series. We are thinking through a strategy to encourage all parents to read these two books. The story truly ramps up awareness of what is cu
This is science fiction by CS Lewis. I'm enjoying it right now because I'm fairly new at running the church library and I've decided I need to get smart on the classics first. (Side bar: has anyone NOT read the Narnia books?)

During our covid "stay at home", I read some "new to me" authors. There were 2 delightful series that I can recommend and will probably buy for our church library.
The Culper Ring Series and the Conspiracy of Spies Series are outstanding historical
I am currently reading Ginny Dye's series, historical fiction about Civil War days and what happened after. The series is called "The Bregdan Chronicles."
It's funny how we librarians are so busy doing library work that we don't get to read the books we purchase...so this summer I decided to read the Baxter Family Series in order...and should complete it shortly.
Now I need to get busy and order more of
Lorene Lumpkin's family gave the Enrichment Center her collection of Jennifer Chiaverini quilts novels. Lorene was still enjoying these when she passed away at age 102. Now I am hooked on these just like Lorene.
