Love for our Volunteers
Almost anyone who visited our Library in the last seven years had the pleasure of meeting Phil Howell, our long-time volunteer. Phil put in long hours keeping track of our books and our patrons on weekdays. A chance to spend more time with his grandsons in Arlington came up, and Phil took it. We are so very grateful for Phil’s years of service and dedication.
And we are trying very hard to fill the spaces he left! Already, we’ve recruited some wonderful new volunteers, but we need more, and we will need people this fall. Interested? Call or come see us for more information. If you like, sign up online by clicking the button below.
Summer Reading Club
This has been the best Summer Reading Club ever! We signed up almost 50 kids and 10 adults. Here are just a few of our pix.
Notice the photo of Edy Flippin, one of our first ADULT members of Summer Reading Club. Adults have had as much fun earning cool prizes as the kids. The only difference is that adults set their own reading goals. Edy’s goal was to read for an hour each day. Another patron challenged herself to read several different genres of books. We are extending the finishing date for children from July 14 till July 28. The Adult version will extend to August 11.
Ladies Book Brunch
Saturday, Sep. 28th, 10am
The Loft, Park Cities Baptist Church
Choose a book to read from the three listed below (when you sign up online) and we’ll discuss it in small groups. Come for light refreshments and plenty of fellowship as PCBC and Concord women get to know one another better.
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
This event will be free of charge, but PLEASE register online using this button. (If you have trouble registering online, just call Emily Martin at 214-860-3993 or email firstname.lastname@example.org)

Take Books on Your Road Trip!
There are still several weeks for our summer sermon series, Romans Road Trip. Here’s a list of the books we have in our collection about the book of Romans.
Don’t forget that we put up lots of Book Lists on our online catalog, OPAC. So if you are going on your own road trip this summer, or just having a nice staycation here, come by the PCBC Library for some great reading.

Click the Right Button
There’s a new member database at Park Cities Baptist Church. It’s known as TouchPoint, and it’s a treasure trove of useful information. When you go to the PCBC website, you’ll find a Member Login button in the upper right hand corner of each page. It couldn’t be easier to log on and check out your member profile.
But – if you want to access our online patron access catalog, OPAC, don’t confuse the Member Logon button on the Library page with the Account Log On, which is on the Library Catalog.See the Screenshots below for clarification.
It’s just a little confusing if you’re a newbie at this. So check it out and give us a call if you have trouble logging in to OPAC. Hint: You can get directly to our OPAC page and log on using our FREE Librista app on your phone. Or if you’re at your computer, use our tinyurl – www.tinyurl.com/PCBCCatalog
