April 10-16, 2011 is National Library Week when libraries are celebrated across the country. Your Conference Library is celebrating by publishing a Guide to NC LIVE for Local Churches in the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church. NC LIVE is an extensive collection of free electronic resources available to all public library card holders in North Carolina. This guide for churches in the NC Conference will focus on resources of use to local church leaders and laity available through NC LIVE on your home computer. Many of the examples given are specific to Methodism. Through NC LIVE, you can access thousands of eBooks, journal articles, images, poetry collections, videos, maps, statistical data, health information, reference resources, and historical and genealogical records. Celebrate National Library Week by learning what free resources, available to you through your local public library, could assist in your ministries. Contact the Media Center if you have questions about the Guide to NC LIVE.
