The Library Committee is trying to retrieve some items that have been borrowed for a long period of time--items you may have forgotten you borrowed. Please check the list on the library bulletin board to see if you may have some library items in your home and return them so others might share them. Thank you so much!
The John Vessels Memorial Library at LPC offers a variety of Christian reading/listening /viewing materials.The classification system includes such sections as Christian Growth (CG), Parenting and Family (PF), Family DVDs (F/DVD) to name a few. Borrowing from the library is free and done the old fashioned way-signing out a card. The library committee will highlight a few items for each update of the website. We encourage everyone to use the library and feel free to offer suggestions for additions.
I've Never Loved Him More is a book to soon be in our Library. Written by Candy Abbott of Georgetown, it is one wife's story of what it means to live out her marriage vows, "in sickness and in health," as she gives care to her husband in his struggle with Alzheimer's disease. This book takes the reader through discovery, acceptance, adjustment, and battle against the ravages of what is often seen as a soul-crushing disease. Armed with faith, humor, and a history of spiritual victories, Candy Abbott demonstrates how she is loving her way through this maze that is stealing her husband of four decades. She engages Scripture, prayer and spiritual support to face this disease. Her journey offers a vision of hope - the light in the tunnel, not the end of the tunnel.
The Library Committee cannot thank the congregational donors enough for adding to our shelves. As always, if you have any suggestions for purchase, please drop a note in the Library mailbox. If you have any "overdue" items, please return them so that others might enjoy them. (There are a few items that were signed out in 2003--do you have any LPC library books/CDs/etc. tucked away in a corner of your home?) The Library Committee would love to hear any review you might have of a book you feel would benefit others. By the way, if you pull a book off a shelf and can't remember where to return it--please don't fret; just drop it in the return box and we will shelve it.
Please come in to the LPC library to browse, read a magazine or check out a book or DVD. The library is not just a meeting room!
