Playing catch up in the church library!


I am the church librarian. I love to read so it is a perfect volunteer job for me! It means I get first pick of the books as they come in! I love to order new books....I do, however have a hard time keeping up with processing them! Do you know that there are 19 steps to processing a book once you get it? Today I spent 5 hours and worked my way through one of those tall stacks of books. My goal is to spend a few hours every morning until I get them finished.



I love our library. I think we are really blessed to have it! It is L shaped and used to be 3 very small Sunday School rooms. They were mostly being used for storage because of their small size. A re-model was done and the rooms were connected. My desk is in the corner and these 2 pictures look out both directions from my desk. A senior adult ladies class meets in there on Sunday.

Just thought I'd share a little about where I volunteer. :-)

Oh Marlene! It reminds me of the room where I used to attend a Moms Bible study! Happy memories! :)

Thanks for your comments! The library is a great place to work if I have a project going on. It is always quiet and cool in there.

I can remember working in the school library in junior high. Don't remember must about it, after all it was a day or so ago. Like you, I like to read. I purchased an ebook reader last year and so far have been able to download all my books for free. There are a number of sites on the internet that offer free ebooks.

How nice! Such a lovely volunteer job. I love the library too with all the books stored from floor to ceiling. I think I could live in a library LOL

Hi Pattas! My favorite book is called "The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks and I first read it from the church library. :-)
