Hi Eva. Thank you for your welcoming words. I've been bumbling around for so long trying to get our library in order! I am so glad to have found this group of experienced church librarians who are willing to share their wisdom with novices like me.
Hi,Eva. Thank you for getting in touch with me. I came to this group because, although I have been a public librarian for 40 years, I'm just now taking on my church library after retiring. The first thing the head of our Library Committee asked me to do is select a theme for our Summer Reading Program. I've done about 30 years of these in public libraries but am having a hard time knowing how to do the same in a church library. Do you have any thoughts? Thank you again for your welcome. Emily
Thank you so much for your warm welcome! There is so much information on this wonderful site. I just know I'll be able to learn many new things and put them to good use in our library. How long have you been a church librarian?
Thank you for the thoughtful reminder about the upcoming conference. I have been eagerly planning to attend, but I did not know about the registration link. Thank you for sharing that. I am thrilled to attend and hope to meet you in person.
