Hello, I was wondering if you would mind looking over the doc. that I have for reclassifying my church library? I will attach it here. Please let me know whether you will or not. If you are willing to I would appreciate suggestions on if anything I have needs to change or maybe move categories, also anything you think should be added and then where. You are welcome to save and then edit the doc., but please make your font red in color so I can see the changes.

Thanks for your help either way, because your comments on my question were very helpful.Library%20Catagories.docx
