The Johnson Library can now be used by members of the congregation by contacting Heather with the date and time they wish to use it. When you arrive, call the church office so they can let you in to the library. You, of course, need to wear a mask. Books can be borrowed or returned using the usual methods. To borrow, sign a circulation card and place it in the box on the book display area. Return books by placing them on the book cart. If you need help finding a book, contact me at email@example.com. I will contact you by e-mail or phone to let you know if we have what you are looking for and when you can pick up the requested book.
Currently, the book display has a collection of books on racism to provide additional information for anyone part of the discussion of How to be an Antiracist or for those just interested in learning more about racism in the United States. Near that collection you will also find a bibliography of the library’s holdings on racism. There are also copies of two of the books that the Library Book Club has been reading. The first is Carnegie”s Maid which is a historical novel that tells a story about how Andrew Carnegie was drawn to philanthropy. The second book is Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsovler. How could two hardworking people do everything right in life and end up destitute? Kingsolver’s novel explores that question.
With the library closed, Christian Century is sitting unread. It has many articles with a Christian slant on the issues of the day such as the pandemic and the protests about the policing of black and brown citizens. You can access current issues of this journal by searching the Christian Century site on line.
