Developing Membership Support

[Note: These are extracts from letters and reports prepared for the Reading Room Division by branch church librarians.]

The church membership as a whole has during the past year shown a steadily increasing active support of the Reading Room by using it more frequently. This is more encouraging to the librarians than the individual member may know. It increases our feeling of security and solidarity, and we are grateful for membership support.

Our activity has shown a small but steady increase, in addition to the attendance of members, throughout the year. The number of visitors using the study room on holidays has been sufficient to prove the opening of the Reading Room on holidays well worth while.

Letters have been received from those who have been benefited through study in this Reading Room, indicating appreciation for the purpose and essential functions of the Reading Room, as well as for individual experiences. Telephone calls and return visits have been made by those wishing to tell of special reasons for gratitude for Reading Room study.
