In September, we started asking for volunteers who had lived in, visited, or been on a mission trip to a country outside of the United States who…See More

"We upgraded several years ago and use Web Opac and Atriuum. Really like both. Especially like being able to check our card catalog during a class or sermon to see if we already have a book being mentioned. We also added ebooks by partnering with…"

Concourse Web OPAC

Our church currently uses Concourse PC based. We want to add Web OPAC so our patrons can search the catalog online. Also so we can start adding ebooks I have quotes for adding Web OPAC to Concourse and for changing to Atriuum. Our library budget is pretty low and moving to Atriuum seems outside our budget. Can someone share how they use Concourse Web OPAC and manage ebooks? Thanks See More

Noah's Ark Lego Build

Church libraries can make a tremendous difference by offering books of faith and virtue to shape young minds and encourage family discussion. Here are two recent children's books by a Virginia pastor, that do that very thing. Both are available at Amazon and other online booksellers. "The Calling Card of the King" is just out this month and is about a king who visits his subjects incognito. He helps them discover the power of forgiveness and love, and leaves behind a calling card that seems to transform lives. "Where Do Belly Buttons Come From?" is a delightful story that reminds us that we all are specially made and especially loved by God!
