Louise Folsom Memorial Library (Amistad Room)
The Louise Folsom Memorial Library over-haul is complete now, with lots more breathing room and a fresh, colorful system that makes browsing for books easy and engaging. Some new sections have been created that might be of particular interest…Devotionals; For Women; Biblical Scholarship; Essays; Parry Lecturers; on and on! Pop in and take a look (and check out a book!)
Did you know we now have an on-line catalog? From the Plymouth website, follow the Connections tab to the LibraryThing link. You can browse from home to see what the library has; the “tag” field will tell you in what physical section of the library you will find the book. This is a work in progress, with about 200 books entered so far (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/plymouthuccfw).
If you’re looking for some suggestions for light summer reads, try The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris, A Stone for a Pillow by Madeleine L’Engle; or Help, Thanks, Wow: the Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott , or perhaps a daily devotional to keep your spiritual practice going while enjoying your summer vacation!
