Reading is a great way to enjoy any weather — cold, hot, or ideal.  Every other Sunday, we will bring two book carts over to the sanctuary for your convenience.   You can check out the books for a period of three weeks—longer if you let us know.  If there is a particular book or author that you like, we will try to have it on the cart.  You can, of course, come to the library where the selection will be much greater.  The library is located in Room 222 in the Education Building.

On Sunday mornings the library is open after the first service until Sunday School begins and a between Sunday School and the second service.   If anyone is willing to volunteer to work in the library on Sunday mornings we will be happy to have it open anytime we have someone to work.  During the week the library is usually open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings between 9:00 and 11:00. To be sure someone is in or to find out if we have the book you are looking for, call the library directly at 870-336-0654.  Follow us on Twitter  CUMCLibrary@CUMChLibrary.   Check out CUMC Library on  Pinterest.Susan Shelton

(Be sure to watch the TV Series based on this book on Netflix to start with Season One.)
