PLEASE HELP THE CHURCH LIBRARY – Christian Nurture Commission oversees the library and has cleaned out the children’s book collection. Books that were removed are on tables in fellowship hall so that the congregation can help us determine if there are any of those books that should be kept because of the donor, the topic, etc. We don’t want to get rid of any books that have value for someone and we may not know. Please use a post-it note to mark a book that should be kept and write a simple explanation why the book needs to be re-shelved. If there are books that you personally like but don’t feel it needs to be kept in the library, please take it. Any books remaining after October 20 will be put in the November 2nd sale.
