October 2017: You're Invited

Posted by Mark Donahue on Thursday, November 2, 2017 @ 2:40 PM

This month's news is a trio of invitations. The BGLibrary belongs to you--YOU--which means that you're free to check out books and DVDs as often as you like with no limitation on the number of items you take or how long you keep them. It's recommended that most materials be returned within two weeks, but no one will be running you down if you keep things longer. No late fees, no extra charges, no membership fees, not even a fine for an occasional lost book. It's YOUR library. You own it.

So that brings us to the first invitation: If we don't have the book you're looking for, ask us to order it. Write it down, hand it to a Team member, or simply leave the request on the table in the library. There's still money in our 2017 account for honoring requests.

Second invitation: if there's a DVD you think we need, ask us to order it. Write it down...

Third (and this one's more complicated), after you read an interesting book or view a good DVD, write up a quick review that we can post. It doesn't have to be long or complicated, just a sentence or two telling what you enjoyed, what you learned, or why you found it helpful. Listen in on conversations around the Gathering Area on a Sunday morning and you'll hear people talking about what they're reading: "The best book I ever read." "So exciting that I literally couldn't put it down." "You should read it; I really think it relates to the problems we talked about last week."  If you felt that way about a book, posting a quick recommendation will keep the conversation alive and spread it to a larger audience. Ditto for DVDs. (Movie Night suggestion?)

It's YOUR library.
