Other Resources

The library connects to PPC in other ways:

  • See this month's PPC newsletter article for the library here.
  • Go to the Church-Synagogue Library Association (CSLA) webpage. CSLA is a national organization of volunteers and professionals whose goal is to help others who are guiding libraries for their houses of worship. A magazine with helpful tips and other resources come with membership and there are local meetings as well as a summer national meeting. Laurie Smith is a member of the local chapter, as is PPC's Esther Bierbaum. Esther also has the distinction of being the Library Services chair in the nationwide organization.
  • These books are at the forefront at PPC: LifeGroups are currently studying Be Joyful by Warren W. Wiersbe. The library has Be Hopeful, Be Alert, Be Rich, each by Wiersbe.
