Last year was The Great Transition after the library was shut down and stored during 2018 construction. It opened in a different, multi-location setting (typical for Calvary, one church in multiple locations!) Now the main part of the library fills the wall of the main conference room. Toddler board books were given to the Nursery and Children's media related to the seasons of the church year are stored in the Nursery. Children's books and books for older Youth and Teens are shelved in their program areas. Children's videos went to the Youth area before construction for use by adult leaders and remain there. Adult books and other media are once again shelved in their traditional way on the con- ference room wall. All borrowing, as in the past, is on the honor system, but statistics are not being kept. The church library history is B.C. and A.D. Before Construction an online catalog was created and still (After Demolition) can be searched beyond browsing the shelves at https://celclibrary.wordpress.com/about/ . Going forward, material will be featured throughout the year both seasonally and otherwise. Donated items have been stored until now as it has taken most of the year to relocate all of the Children's, Youth & Teen's collection. Now that their space has opened up on the conference room wall, items "New to us" will again start to appear. Lois Keel, librarian January, 2020
