Creating and maintaining a church library can sometimes be a daunting task, particularly since most people doing so are the only ones in their congregation. But we are here to help make it easier.
Listed below are resources that may be useful to church librarians or those church members considering starting or reviving a library. The list has been used in the workshop we offer periodically, designed for support and information-sharing. Additional recommendations, requests, and questions are welcome.
