MarkForBlogAs the rain and chilly weather continues (although, I have to say, personally, I love the temperatures we have right now – the rain is just the bummer), what can one do with oneself?  Well, of course, I have the perfect suggestion; one can come and try the library out for size.

I do realize that many people want to make this trip with a specific title in mind, and want to know first if the library has said title. Perfectly understandable, I do the same thing. Our library catalogue can be accessed online. There one can do their searching, and come in knowing we have that special book available. OK, this is great for you personally. But what about the many of you that have children that also need something to do on these rainy days?

There are of course many options, but the Salzmann Library offers a rather significant selection of children’s religious books, known as the Faith Formation collection. This collection is perfect for parents looking for something to read to their children, or for slightly older children to read on their own. Like the rest of the collection, this continues to grow as Kathy finds new children’s books to add. There is the option for the whole family, several books for the kids, one or two for the parents to read and then even a good movie or two to watch as a whole family. And the rainy day blues have just been beat with good, wholesome books and entertainment.

As always, if you have any ideas and comments for things I could change, please let me know. These are always appreciated, anything I can do to make this better I will strive my best to accomplish.
