Mark Twain once said, " In a good book room you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them."
Emmaus House is blessed to have many shelves of books covering subjects from theology to contemplation, self-help to prayer, Ignatius to Frances, and hold the wisdom and insight of many great authors-- Merton, Rahner, Green, Chittister, Nouwen, and many, many more.
The problem is that the books are spread all over the house and are in no particular order. We'd like to remedy this situation and make all these treasures more accessible, but we need the expertise and help of a few volunteers.
If you have experience with organizing a small library (or a big one for that matter) or would like to help with this upcoming project, please contact us at Emmaus, 515.282.4839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
