HONORING JOYCE WEEKLY AND LIBRARY STAFF
Morningside Baptist Church was officially opened on August
24, 1952. Throughout these many decades, it has been a beacon of hope for our
community. Included in the church was an added beacon of light with the opening
of a library in 1960. In 1969, the library had approximately 1,900 books on
hand. The library was further blessed to have Mrs. Joyce Weekley join its
volunteer staff and effective this year, she has remained as a volunteer for 50
years! Today the library is privileged to provide in excess of 28,000 books and
printed publications. Clearly Joyce has spearheaded this activity, which has
been recognized throughout our region as a model church library, and she even
helped to establish a library for the Columbus Baptist Association.
As impressive as the number of printed volumes is, the more
impressive idea is the number of lives, both children and adults, that have
been impacted by her faithful and exceptional service as she graciously guided
them in their selections. Please thank her for her selfless service to the Lord
and His Church and thank her and the following volunteers for their dedication
to this noteworthy resource that we are so privileged to have.
Joyce Weekley- Librarian,
Margaret Arnold, Monica Cavendar, Margaret Duncan, Pat Farmer, Shirley
Beverly Porter and Evoyne Womack.
