need some samples of the different polices that govern a media center-- if other librarians would e-mail those to me, I then could adapt them to my library.

thank-you very much-- nathaniel

Here are some sources for finding help in formulating guidelines for our Church Library Ministry:
1) Church Library Ministry Information Services, published by Broadman & Holman, available through LifeWay, has examples of policies and explanations of why we need them.
2) Go to Church Library website, in the right hand column of your screen there are "quick links" -- choose 'Subject Index of Online Resources for Church Library.' There you will find a multitude of articles related to the different aspects of Church Library Ministry. There is one under Administration which is titled "•Policies for Your Library — Developing and Revising" which will be very helpful to you.
3)Some church websites may have library webpages. Some of these may have their policies posted.

I think it is interesting to read policies and other guidelines (such as weeding) from both public libraries and Christian libraries. Many of the policies may be similar and we can include those, and then we will want to remember the purposes of our Christian libraries and include guidelines which incorporate those purposes.
And first, not last, as I am stating it, is Pray, Pray, Pray!

There are public library policies that could be adapted to your needs. Feel free to visit Oneonta (AL)Public Library's listing on their website at . They were recognized for theirs last year and have made them available for anyone's use. Fara
