CHURCH LIBRARY MONTH – October

Church Library Month - October

CHURCH LIBRARY MONTH

National Church Library Month in October shines a light on the periodicals, books, and resources available to our parish leaders and congregations.

A flourishing library provides a way for parishioners to continue their church education beyond the Sunday sermon. The church library also gives the classrooms a way to prepare for next Sunday’s lessons. If your church doesn’t have a library, starting even a small one creates the foundation for a growing and reliable resource that will continue to give back to your church family for years to come.

While growing your library, celebrate National Reading Group Month and create a group for your library to meet during October. During the Church Library Month, include a book offering in one service to help grow your library.

HOW TO OBSERVE

This is a good time for church libraries to add more books to their collections and for patrons to help out, either by donating books or volunteering to be the librarian for a day. Use #ChurchLibraryMonth to post on social media.
