"We have devotionals that aren't specifically to use for a year but we've gotten rid of most of the all-year ones.  We might keep some real classics as a resource for people to use for a while to see if they like it enough to buy it,…"

"I know I may be a little late on this, but, we are giving away devotionals starting this Sunday for the new year to anyone who wants them. This is something that Mrs. Kathy has done for awhile and seems to work. Sherall"

Starting an e-book collection

Good afternoon everyone,  I do hope that you are well and are enjoying the fall.We are considering adding e-books to our library, and I need your help.1. When you began the e-book collection, how did you determine the mix of that initial order and for the first year?  By mix, I mean: fiction vs non-fiction, adult vs. children, and within non-fiction (commentaries, Christian living, parenting, etc.).   Does it mirror the holdings or focus on a certain demographic?2. How much do you duplicate -…See More

"I love this idea.  Thank you for the tip.  I am sure many people have devotionals at home that were too good to throw away - but might not be read again.  What a great way to share the Word. Marilyn Trueblood"

"We have a few classics in our devotional collection, but rarely add anything new because they are almost never checked out by our patrons.  For me, sticking with the classics makes it easy to cull the remainder."

"I agree with JL in that any books that are written in are not allowed in our library, and we offer a one year check out.  Here is how I keep our shelves slim on devotionals;  The last Sunday of the year and the first Sunday of the year are…"

Barbara Hooper replied to the discussion 'Weeding and collection policy for 242 devotional literature question'
"I agree to all of the reply of Joanne Ladewig.  I just have a few classic devotionals, primarily so patrons can view them and sometimes to use for a presentation."

Joanne Ladewig replied to the discussion 'Weeding and collection policy for 242 devotional literature question'
"Don't add any in which the date is limited to a certain year. Offer them as freebies or toss them.  Any that have not checked out within 3-5 years, weed. Any with personal writings in them, weed. Offer a 6 month or one year checkout period…"
