librarySt. Andrew’s Library Open House

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.
