A portable children’s library was a great idea but I can’t take the credit for it. It was a gift given to me by the good Lord Himself. In my opinion, books and children just go together. During my teaching career of over 30 years, I saw many books finding their way into children’s hands whenever they had free time. Time was set aside to read to my class each day and they couldn’t wait to gather on the reading rug to listen to what was to happen next to their favorite character in our book.
I feel that books are golden keys that open many doors for children’s imagination to grow and grow. The next best thing to a child about reading a book is to have someone read to them. Take the opportunity to pick up a book and read it to a child and feel the magical golden key open the door to both the child’s and your imagination!
As Snoopy and his friends say, “Good books make good friends.” The Children’s Library is located in the Narthex. It is filled with books and magazines for ages newborn through pre-teen. Children are free to take books, and either return them after reading or keep them. New books are being added all the time. Enjoy children!
Come and visit the portable children’s library in the Narthex at Christ Anglican Church in Carefree!
Christ Anglican Church in Carefree, Arizona began as an outreach from the clergy of Saint Nicholas Anglican Church in Scottsdale, Arizona in July of 1997. We are a founding member of the Diocese of the Southwestern States in the Anglican Province of Christ the King. For the love of God and to glorify His Son Jesus Christ, the charter members of Christ Church Parish gave sacrificially to buy property, erect an altar and build a Church that was consecrated on the Feast of Christ the King in 1999. This is the sacred ground where the faithful regularly proclaim God’s truth through Catholic order as it is embodied in the historic Book of Common Prayer, where they hear the Gospel and receive the Holy Sacraments.
