New PCOC Library Books Headed our Way
Our church library is a treasure trove for our entire congregation. Books for all ages abound. Agape for All is spearheading a new section for our library, with the theme of agape, and how that affects social justice issues.
Thanks to Ann Pearson and Jane Hawkins for gathering books and working with our wonderful librarians Judy Arms and Jeremy Cunningham to help select and catalog the books. With our recent adult education classes and Preston Love’s presentation and North Omaha tour, we may be even more eager to read these thought provoking stories and learn about positive ways forward.
“Stay Tuned” for a display table of the new books, and then an announcement when the section is truly “open for business.”
