Church Resource Center (CRC) Annual Report January 2005

Prepared by Dn. Danial Doss

It has been another blessed year for the bookstore. We had more books, icons, cassettes, and videos than we ever had before. More and more parishioners are also using the bookstore for their spiritual needs.

Accomplishments:

1. Continued and added new church accounts with several Christian organizations.

  • St. Isaac of Syria Skete, Wisconsin - Byzantine Icons
  • Conciliar Press, Ben Lomond, California
  • Light and Life Publishing Company, Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Regina Orthodox Press
  • Dormition Romanian Monastery (we get most of the icons from them)

    2. A receptacle for book/icon purchases was installed in the CRC area so that people can deposit payments.

    3. A list of suggestions was distributed for:

  • Lenten Readings,
  • "Those Who Hurt." and "Other Helpful Books for Everyday Living",
  • Christmas gifts.

    4. Five hundred dollars ($500) from CRC sales was donated for the new altar boy robes.

    Plans for 2005:To continue adding new books to the bookstore

  • To purchase more shelves from IKEA for books, icons, and video display.
  • To continue preparing a list of suggested books for different occasions

    Lending Library Recap

    In February, Lydia Christensen tackled the monumental task of organizing the lending library. Many books were donated and she started to sort books by category. She also had to establish a system in her computer to catalog the books. (Her computer has no always been cooperative.) This is a tough job because she must know the content of the books. Quite often, if there is no summary, she reads the book first so she can properly catalog it. Books had to be stamped and identified.

    So at this point, we can say that the library is moving ahead. We are grateful for Lydia's dedication to this time-consuming effort. If you are interested in a specific topic, please tell Lydia. If there is no book on it, she will order it through the bookstore.
