“Lila”

by Marilynne Robinson

The Book Group will not meet in December. Our next meeting is Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, when we will discuss “Lila” by Marilynne Robinson.

Robinson, one of the greatest novelists of our time, returns to the town of Gilead in an unforgettable story of a girlhood lived on the fringes of society in fear, awe and wonder.

Lila, homeless and alone after years of roaming the countryside, steps inside a small-town Iowa church—the only available shelter from the rain—and ignites a romance and a debate that will reshape her life. She becomes the wife of a minister, John Ames, and begins a new existence while trying to make sense of the life that preceded her newfound security.

Church Library

Come and visit the Kountze Memorial church library! The room just to the east of Fellowship Hall, surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows, houses our family library. This is a wonderful congregational resource, which includes a wide range of religious and spiritual learning materials for children, teens, and adults of all ages. Our church library houses books ranging from devotionals to bible study guides, fiction and non-fiction, religious art, health and holistic care, church history, and popular children and teen titles.

Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteers are both need to help organize the collection and be present during library hours, both one-time and ongoing. Please contact Kim Vawter or Ian Hartfield at library@kmlchurch.org or 402-341-7761 for more information.

Thinking about donating books to the library?

Thank you for considering a donation to the Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church Library, we appreciate your support! The library accepts books and audio-visual materials that are in good condition. Donated books and AV materials become the property of the library. Sometimes a donation cannot be placed on our library shelves because it duplicates other works, does not fit with the focus or purpose of the library, or due to other limitations of space and staff. By donating to the library, you are authorizing Kountze Memorial to accept, sell, recycle or discard any donated materials at the discretion of library volunteers and/or church staff. – adapted from Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, MN
