Library Committee Description

6 Members. Term 2 years. Meets as needed. Reports in September. Hosts in October. Open to Attenders.

The Library Committee maintains and manages the inventory of books and pamphlets in the Meeting library including acquiring, cataloging and overseeing circulation. They inform the meeting of new publications and promote their use. Care is taken to select books about Quakerism, Quaker history, and the lives and subjects that demonstrate the tenets of Quaker values; Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship/Service, in short, books that nurture the spiritual growth of the Meeting.

The Library Committee places orders for Faith & Practice for Children’s Religious Education and Care & Counsel.

Once a year, usually in the Spring, the Committee sponsors a Used Book Sale to augment the $150 budget for books. Orders are then placed for new books to be added to the inventory.
