Does anybody have library procedures they would like to share? The traditional 2-week borrow time, .... but any others?
Our library presently is 'catalogued' by 'theme'. This is a good system, but tends to be too ambiguous and open for personal interpretation. In the past (20+ years ago or so) I used the Dewey Decimal System. Is that still a viable tool or would a newer system be more effective? What systems do my 'fellow librarian friends' use? Thanks for your input.
What do I need to get my library automated? I have a computer and a monitor. That's it. I would love to have it totally automated and would appreciate any input.

At the Hairdresser’s, Contemplating Readers’ Advisory

I love talking to people about what they’re reading. I always apologetically preface my questions by explaining that I’m a librarian because I don’t think folks frequently talk about what they’re reading. Lately, the service man who came to fix my stove shared that he likes to read biographies of sports and rock stars although he avoids the…
There is a great biblically-based manga/anime series out that was published in Japan. It has such titles as Manga Messiah and Manga Metamorphosis. Anyone who has been to a local library recently knows that manga has become quite popular among kids and youth. In addition, the series is available in multiple languages if anyone is working among immigrant populations. Go to the following website for more information: Next…Continue

I ran across a book yesterday that was 118 years old! "The Inspiration and Accuracy of the Holy Scriptures" by John Urquhart. There is a stamp in it with the name S. A. Duggan and address from Leyton, (London, England) He also signed and dated it "1/5/95" (May 1st, 1895) That was 1 month after John Urquhart wrote the preface.
Not sure how this works, yet. I'm 55 years old. I lost my wife August 30, 2012. My biggest passion now is walking, and working at the church. I really like to edit the church videos and make the worship service DVDs for the church. I need to light a fire under the library here at church. I guess I need to raise the library awareness level.
Stop by and give me some ideas!
If you have patrons who own a Kindle and subscribe to Amazon Prime, there's a huge selection of "free" (free to Kindle/Prime members) Christian ebooks that can be borrowed from the Kindle Lending Library.
See my blog post showing how to find the "free" Christian Kindle books.
