Getting Catholic books into Public Libraries is an old Tradition of the Knights of Columbus
Making information about the Catholic faith available to the public is a tradition of the Knights of Columbus. A little known part of that tradition is getting public libraries to add Catholic books to their collection. This is something I have been doing with my local and regional public libraries. I have written several web pages on how to evangelize by adding Catholic books to public library collections. I have made a study of what books the libraries will accept and how to convince them, what books circulate, and what books produce conversions and spiritual growth.|
But while it is easy for me to convince local librarians to add Catholic books and other media I can not do it for your local library because librarians are not interested in the opinions of someone hundreds or thousands of miles away. The most I can reach is libraries in my region. This is where you and perhaps your local Knights of Columbus come in.
While I have written a lot, I do not know everything. You can get involved and share your experience with me thus making this project better.
Finally if your Knights of Columbus chapter has a web site perhaps you could link to this page, geocities.com/richleebruce/knights.html or my main page on suggesting Catholic books to public libraries, geocities.com/richleebruce/library.html.
I am also interested in publishing articles in Knights of Columbus periodicals on this topic. If you are an editor and this interests me you can leave a note in my guest book.
You can leave a message in my Guest book.
Geocities will e-mail me to inform me of your message, only I will be able to read it, so this is like e-mail.
