In January I will be taking over the task of resurrecting the church library and making it mission driven and active to the life of the congregation and the community. It will be a challenge on many fronts but I am excited by the possibilities.
My professional training is in library and information studies and I have been a school librarian, a public librarian and a higher ed librarian. The church library, I know, will be different yet fundamentals will remain the same. I look forward to sharing and receiving insights with a ministry I feel is important and has great potential.
Right now I am reviewing the collection, discovering if there are any policies in place and the like.
I have been developing a simple webpage to use to promote the library, add book reviews, etc. This can be linked to the church's webpage and Facepage page.
