A Word from the Librarian
Becoming a Library Team Member
I realized while in Westernport, MD that I am not doing the library ministry justice. I should be sharing the opportunity of “service” with new church members and those that have not found their place of service yet! Since the library is a unique ministry, we can find a place of service for anyone. There are many different areas to work within this ministry:

- Data entry and processing “all” types of media
- Creative promotions in our window display, showcase, bulletin board and newsletter
- Classification and cataloging of media before it can be entered in the computer
- Outreach and in-reach activities coordinator
- Circulation desk personnel (assisting people with book check-ins and check-outs)

We need to have a library team member available when the library doors are open. The library ministry should be about service not about books or media on the shelves. The library ministry is much like Jesus’ ministry. It is about the stops along the way. Jesus did his ministry during the stops when he had been interrupted. My prayer is that several people within our church family will come to me this month or soon and ask to learn more about this ministry. We can work out times to get together to do some training.

  In Service to Christ,

Library Support & Resources
Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions

We are blessed here in Alabama. There are states where church libraries do not have the support of their State Baptist Board of Missions, and because of that do not have the organization that we do. Some states have discontinued their state library workshops. We have a great support system here in Alabama from people like Mike Jackson in the Discipleship & Family Ministries at our State Board of Missions. Be sure to check their website often to keep up with all that is going on in your organization. The website is www.alsbom.org.
