I just returned home from a good day's work at Plymouth Library. This was the first time I shared a story time with preschool and pre-kindergarten classes of Seattle Infant Development Center and Preschool, housed Monday through Thursday in Plymouth Church. It was fun to work with kids again! We shared stories and songs about how things grow and my puppet friend made a special appearance. In the past, I shared story time in Plymouth Sunday School classes and remind teachers to contact me for future visits.
I continue to write blog articles (almost obsessively - I really enjoy it!). A new one appears every Monday and sometimes more during the week. I’ve covered journaling for spiritual clarity, starting a church book club and published book reviews from church members. In coming weeks (and months), read articles about the lawsuit UCC recently brought against the State of North Carolina, immigration and "Capturing Souls." Go to the Library blog on Plymouth's website: PlymouthChurchSeattle.org/library.
When we receive new books, I place them on the Traveling Library book cart; so check out Library display tables during Sunday fellowship in the lounge. "The traveling library is possible because Plymouth members volunteer to be at the tables on most Sundays. We need a couple more people to do this on occasional Sundays, in order to continue providing the traveling library regularly. Duties and time commitment are quite limited. The traveling library does not operate in the summer, so in the short term we're looking for help through mid-June," says Library Committee Chair, Ingrid Holmlund. Interested? Have questions? Please contact Ingrid at IngridandDavid@comcast.net. Thank you for considering this. It's an easy way to help where there's a need! –Suzanne Sanderson, Plymouth Church Librarian
