LIBRARY NEWS: Return overdue materials, issuing of 2015 library cards

From our librarian, NevaJean:  …“Last year was a time of shuffling books around trying to find shelf space.  Then what joy it was to get a new children‘s book case and move their section out from adult fiction.  Now everything is easier to find….keep reading in 2015.  FYI…Yvonne was the top reader of 2014.  During the last year 291 items were checked out in comparison to 288 in 2013.” 



 ~ NEWEST REVIEW ~
It is “Max Lucado Month” here at Cedonia.  Lucado is a best selling Christian author, writer and preacher at Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, Texas.  He’s written almost 100 books, of which we have 18 in our library.  Going through tough times?  Lucado says you can get through anything with God‘s help.  Reminding you that “deliverance” to the Bible is what “Jazz music” is to Mardi Gras.   Lucado offers a bold, brassy message of encouragement based on the Old Testament story of Joseph.  Learn how God can use your “mess“ for good.  Read You‘ll Get Through This …our  “Featured Library Item of the Week.”   Check the shelf in the non-fiction area on the south wall of the library for other Lucado books. 


LIST OF BOOKS FOR 2015 
ALPHABETIZED BY AUTHOR LAST NAME

Lucado, Max  (Travel Light)
Begin the new year by traveling light…releasing the burdens you were never intended to bear.  “Weary travelers… you’ve seen them…everything they own crammed into their luggage.  Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases.”  Walk along Max Lucado and learn to Travel Light. Found in nonfiction.

LIBRARY NEWS: BOOKS 2015



If you can not find a book you want, it may be checked out.
See NevaJean and she will put a hold on it for you.



Message from our Librarian NevaJean:  "Recently there was a question on how to find a non-fiction book when only the author is known and not the title or subject. Answer: Look in the white notebook labeled LIBRARY CATALOG laying in its side on a non-fiction shelf. The catalog lists all the non-fiction authors (last name first- ABC order) and the Book Titles and the subject where they are shelved. There are separate tabs for lists of fiction and children’s books etc.”

Check out the "Featured Library Item of the Week" placard
(thank you NevaJean). Also in this area of the library you will find a new “Outreach Ministries” display. Thank you so much Jenni and Wilma for the beautiful job you did on this important aspect of CCC. On the counter to the right of the display, you will find current newsletters of the various outreach ministries of the church.


Note: For a full list of previously reviewed books
 in 2011, 2012 and 2013,
see "pages pages pages"
on the upper right of the blog for that year's books
 alphabetized by author name.


BOOKS 2014 BOOKS 2014 BOOKS 2014


 Some reference books have been added to our library: Halley’s Bible Handbook, The Bible Almanac, Family Encyclopedia of the Bible, Great People of the Bible and How They Lived, Jesus and His Times, Today’s Dictionary of the Bible, Then Sings My Soul, Meet the Bible, Webster’s Dictionary and even a Bible or two. You will find these items on the bottom shelf on the non-fiction side of the library. “The Bible is the most priceless possession of the human race.”


QUESTION:  WHAT ABOUT CHECKING OUT THE
FEATURED ITEM OF THE WEEK?
A question recently came up as to whether it is OK to check out the book(s) that happen to be the Featured Library Item of the Week and the answer is a definite yes!  Feel free to take it on that very Sunday.  Thank you to all of our library users for your dedication to the wonderful world of reading!


~ ATTENTION PARENTS OF PRIMARY READERS ~
Primary readers can choose from 35 soft-cover Arch book selections located in the green bucket on the bottom shelf in the Children’s Section of the library.  Practice reading the familiar Bible Stories or enjoy sharing the colorful pictures with a younger brother or sister and tell them the story. GRANDPARENTS…check these books out and have them on hand when the grandkids  (and great-grand kids) come for a visit.  

~ NEWEST REVIEW ~

To add to the enjoyment of the Christmas season check out the Christmas books and DVD’s that are all located on the Christmas shelf (look for the Christmas garland) and available for check-out.  New to our library is the book A Log Cabin Collection.  In this collection of nine Christmas romances, readers will relive a pioneer Christmas with all its challenges and delights as penned by some of Christian fiction‘s bestselling authors.  Among them Wanda E. Brunstetter, Jane Kirkpatrick, Liz Tolsma, and Erica Vetsch.  Also new this year is  Julie Cannon's I'll Be Home For Christmas.  And…be sure and check out The Star of Bethlehem  DVD… great to see over and over every year.
