Spring 2015 Conference Hightlights

The WELS-CLO Spring Conference was held April 18th, 2015 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in North Mankato, MN.  Their beautiful church and school facility provided a wonderful venue for church librarians from Wisconsin and Minnesota to meet and discuss ways to build up church libraries. A Q & A session offered many new ideas for attendees to implement in their own libraries.

The keynote speaker was Prof. Thomas Nass, author of "End Times: Jesus is Coming Soon." From an author's perspective, he discussed the process of writing his book and getting it published.  From a pastor's perspective, he illustrated popular teachings about the millenium and countered it with the comfort that the book of Revelation offers Christians in these New Testament times.

Conference attendees are enjoying some refreshments and fellowship with other librarians.

The Northwestern Publishing House book/gift display was popular with everyone.

Prof. Thomas Nass gives an interesting presentation on his book "End Times: Jesus is Coming Soon".

St. Paul's Church Library has a cozy area just for kids.
