Church Library guide tells all

 Judy Terry of Memphis, TN has published a useful, 59 page guide for Creating and Maintaining a Parish Library. I like the encouraging tone she sets in the introduction:
Visit the St John Orthodox Church Library
Get ready for a fun job! I say fun, because you get to wear many hats: storyteller, public relations specialist, creative director, detective, CEO, and data-entry clerk!
The bad news is that the job is time-consuming on the front end and the pay is low, or probably non-existent. But the good news is that you are bringing the life of the Church and the lives of holy men and women to adults and children seeking the Kingdom of God. And there’s even more good news! You don’t have to do this alone, and you are probably the only person who will know if you make a mistake.
It's a very comprehensive, readable guide that will be helpful to church librarians new and old. You can download a nicely illustrated PDF version here.
