Library Report – Belovan

  • The library continues to grow at a good pace. We have new visits regularly and our Tuesday discussions are doing very well. Peter is currently leading the discussions on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. Tee has started a UU principles discussion on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and we are having an open discussion on the last Tuesday of each month.
  • On Jan 20th at 5pm we will be having our first event at the Lecture Hall. A panel discussion on Religion as a source of social change. We are still looking for someone to do the introductions for this event. If anyone can help that would be great.
  • In the future I’m hoping to book religious leaders from around SL. To speak in the lecture hall. I’m trying to figure out the best day and time for these. I want them to be like once a month around the same time.
  • megimp suggested that the library have copies of the various UU pamphlets. He said he has a few that are out of print. This idea was well-received.
  • Desire will be the new library assistant
