Good Shepherd Episcopal Church is proud to announce the formal launching of its theological library, fully re-organized, catalogued, and ready for the public to use. On Saturday November 5 from one until five p.m., everyone is invited to mingle with clergy and librarians from Cherokee, Clay, Towns, and Union counties who will gather in the Undercroft to see the library.
Parishioner Kathy Wright, who has spearheaded the re-organization, believes Good Shepherd's to be the largest theological collection in Western North Carolina. Organized by topic, as in a bookstore, the collection now has about 2000 titles, and it continues to grow. The library has been catalogued, and the catalog is available online through the church website, www.goodshepherdhayesville.org.
Library hours coincide with church office hours, nine to five weekdays. Visitors are asked to check in with the office to let our Parish Administrator know that they are using the library. Comfortable chairs make reading a pleasure, and tables are handy for writing. Of course the books may be checked out as well.
Although the library has existed in some form for many years, the newly re-organized and catalogued library will be easy and efficient to use. Good Shepherd invites all book lovers and seekers of spiritual knowledge to come and see what is available
