Welcome to the LeValley United Methodist Church Library!
 
The LeValley United Methodist Church has a very resourceful Christian library. The "Book & DVD" cart is located in the commons area before entering into the sanctuary.  You are most encouraged to come and check-out the variety of books and other media materials that are here for your enjoyment and reading adventures!
 
The most valuable, favorite and best book of all time to read is the 'Good book' ~ The HOLY BIBLE.
 
LIBRARY NEWS   

JUNE 2019

 

It was a delight to read the biography Mrs.

Oswald Chambers after reading her husband’s

devotionals My Utmost for His Highest and

Daily Thoughts for Disciples for years. The

reader learns of Oswald and Biddy’s time

together, their brief 7 year marriage before

his death and her dedication to publishing

all of her husband’s sermons and Bible studies

which she had taken down in shorthand since

he spoke extemporaneously! We learn how

they spent their very busy days either at the

Bible Training College or in Egypt providing

for WWI soldiers while in the employ of the

YMCA. The book was insightful and inspiring.

Well worth the read.

 

Our other selections this month are The Quiet

Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott and Mrs.

Lincoln’s Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini.

These novels take place in the 1870’s and 1860’s

respectively. Louisa May Alcott’s is a collection

of short stories written and gifted to 5 teenage

sisters to print in their family newspaper. Mrs.

Lincoln’s Dressmaker is a historical fiction that

speaks of the private lives of Abraham and Mary

Lincoln through the eyes of her dressmaker,

Elizabeth Keckley a former slave.

 

Hope you will find one of these selections or

something on the cart or in the library that you

will enjoy reading this month.
