Sunday May 31, after 2nd Service
The event features the Civil Rights collection for youth recently donated by Jim Taylor. Included are award-winning books such as Warriors Don’t Cry, A Summer of Kings, Ten Miles Past Normal, The Lions of Little Rock, The Rock and the River, Lies We Tell Ourselves, and One Crazy Summer. These books introduce you to the people who made the Civil Rights movement come alive in a format that is in the best tradition of story-telling. Jim will be at the Open House, so come by, have a cookie, see the books, and discuss them with Jim.
Jim’s passion for providing these materials has inspired the Library Committee to pull books with peace and inclusion themes from our shelves for our youngest children, and put them on display. Other new books for children have also been added, so come and see them all at the Open House.
More Library News!
Facebook – For those of you who may not know, our St. Andrews Library has a page on Facebook. You are most enthusiastically (!) invited to “friend” and “like” this page. We (Library Committee) can put out a lot of information – events, new features in the Library, even book reviews - to our congregation if we know there are a lot of folks visiting this page. And, thanks for joining!
Volunteers, anyone? Our Library Committee is meeting as a separate committee again. If you might consider volunteering for a given library event or service, or for serving on the Library Committee, please contact Krista Keosheyan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ATTENTION YOUNG READERS

Included are award-winning books such as Warriors Don’t Cry, A Summer of Kings, Ten Miles Past Normal, The Lions of Little Rock, The Rock and the River, Lies We Tell Ourselves, and One Crazy Summer. You will meet the people who made the civil rights movement come alive and in a format that is in the best tradition of storytelling. Welcome to an enriching experience.
SAPC Library is again giving away donated books to clients of our SAPC Food Pantry. At the last “Book Pantry”, 90 books were given away to 25 clients. Book donations are needed, especially cookbooks, kid’s books, landscaping/gardening books, and books in Spanish. Please leave any Book Pantry donations in the Library, behind the door in the designated area. Thank you!
