The Library Committee

CALLING ALL BOOK LOVERS!  Do you love to read? The Library Committee is looking for new members.  The requirements are simple; you love books.  We are a “hands-on” Committee.  We review books, buy new items, sort books, talk about books and work to keep our Library a welcoming place.  We meet 6 times a year in the evening and welcome any help on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  The time involved is up to you. If you love books, contact Phyllis Wendorf or leave your name and contact info in the Church office.
