Please click here for the October 2018 issue of our E-Newsletter which I hope you will find of interest, which has reached the milestone of its 80th edition, no less.
In this issue we report on our recent visit to the Bible Society Library in Cambridge and look forward to our next activity on Saturday 20 October 2018 when we will be visiting The Kilns, former home of C.S. Lewis in Oxford. There is still time to book for this visit if you have not already done so.
We also look forward to our various activities for 2019 and highlight some ‘outside’ events likely to be of interest to Christian librarians. These include a book launch at Church House Bookshop, the Christian Resources Exhibition, the Arts Centre Group’s Poetry Alive event, and the Premier Radio Digital Conference.
Our retired members will be pleased to discover CARE’s After Work Net initiative while readers may wish to inspect the new and re-designed web site from the Evangelical Alliance. The EA have also launched a new booklet on Christianity in the Workplace for employers which we mention.
Congratulations are due to the Christian Book Promotion Trust whose Speaking Volumes library scheme won an award at a recent Christian book trade conference.
Finally, Richard Waller closes the issue with a brief meditation based on the New Testament letter of James.
STOP PRESS ITEMS
What will you be doing to promote libraries during Libraries Week (8 – 13 October 2018)? Please let me know what you will be doing in your library or your church, and we will include a report in ,a later issue. I am sure that we can all do something, however modest.
Readers will have been interested to hear the recent announcement that the streaming service Netflix has acquired the screen rights to C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia and are planning new adaptations of the popular fantasy series.
