"I would do God, Jesus Holy Spirit separate as there are books that talk about them individually you might consider other headings like Family, Prayer and Christian living in the future As for fiction ABC order by author is pretty standard"

Children's Libraries

One of our new members, Deborah Gray, suggested we have a group for those who serve with children's libraries. Or perhaps those who are considering one. Or those who have mobile libraries they take to the children's area on a scheduled basis. Our purpose here is to share our stories, ideas, and discuss concerns.See More

Read Around the Library

We played on the VBS theme used maps to decorate the idea being that they read out of each 'group' (fiction, 100s, 200s,...) with a round prize for each (glo-stick, pencil,  ball...) and they put a sticker on a world map for each book Both our regular church kids and the day-care kids are enjoying I did not even think about asking the adults to join us

Adair,  I have an extremely busy week this week.  We have almost 100 reservations coming to Paris Day, our first homeschool event this school year.  That is Thursday and it will take us all day Friday to pack up and clean up.  Maybe next week I could get with you.  I work Monday and Wednesday afternoons at nursing home and at library some Tuesdays and every Thursday.  Talk to you later.  Carol Gilmore
