Specialized Tasks

Currently the co-chairs are doing these since we have more specialized library backgrounds, but there is no reason some of this couldn’t be done by anyone with some library knowledge.

  • Catalog materials and print out labels on the computer using library software.
  • Select and order library materials.
  • Provide bibliographies for special topics.
  • Write articles for West Wind newsletter and/or Sunday Order of Service.

None needed but a willingness to help as well as learn new tasks.
