Changed lives are a powerful thing. Recently an 18-year-old customer came into our library and, after hemming and hawing a bit, said he was needing to change his life. He asked: "I wonder if you guys carry Bibles?" I assured him we did and pointed him toward various versions of the Bible. He made his selection and left.
Three days later he came in and told me that ever since he began reading the Bible things have begun to turn around for him, which included landing a job! We live in a stressful culture that is hard on kids and it was a pleasure to know we had resources in the library to fill a need.
