Successful church libraries by Elmer L Towns( Book )

4 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The church today faces the alternative of advancing to meet the problems of the 70s or regressing into the past. Christian young people are demanding up-to-date answers to up-to-date problems. The church is being squeezed by cultural pressures and bombarded by the knowledge explosion. This book is designed to help the church that has no library but wishes to get one started, as well as to encourage the struggling church library. One of the primary goals of a church library should be that of strengthening the Christian education program of the church and a church library should be more than a depository of books from which church members occasionally check out certain titles. The church library must be an educational resource center to which teachers and other church leaders look for assistance. Visual aids, audio-visual equipment, and reference sources are an important part of the church library. Just as the quality of a college is measured by its library, so the quality of the educational program of the church may be gauged by its library. (Author)
