Community UCC Stitching for You - Join Us!
Do You Knit or Crotchet? Would you like to learn to knit or crochet? A new group is forming to share our talents and service. We meet on the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month at 1:00 p.m., in the church library. We’ll plan projects, work together or individually to help others enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of Community UCC members and friends.
For more info please call Barb Taglang @ 610-779-2649 if you have any suggestions, need information, or would be willing to participate in helping us help others.
The Church Library
Marianne Lubenow and Lorie Martin
Come in and check out our new library. We’ve accomplished some much needed house - keeping. Many of the older books have been given to the Berks Co. Library Annual Boll Sale. Your donations have been incorporated into our collection enlarging the fiction and non-fiction sections.
We encourage you to borrow any of the books or other items. A log book in which you list the items borrowed, date and your name will help us keep track of the selections and how often they are checked out. Children’s books and tapes are located in the lower level of the book case.
We will continue to accept your donations. Besides your contributions we’d like to hear your suggestions and opinions. Would a magazine section be worthwhile? We look forward to hearing your comments and recommendations. Thanks for helping us to revitalize the library.
