It’s a New Year!

Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
~Martin Luther

Ready or not, it’s a new year …which seemed to arrive more quickly this time than last!

November was a busy month on campus with many wonderful activities and speakers related to our exhibit: Creation and Illumination: The 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible. For readers who are APU friends, I hope you took the time to attend at least one of the activities and to view the amazing exhibit. I have learned of new books through our speakers, attended wonderful music and drama presentations, participated in an all-day KJV Bible read-a-thon, and made some new friends along the way. Did you have a favorite activity? Love to hear your comments!

This is also my excuse for not getting much posted …I was learning too much to sit down and write about it. But with all things new and resolutions and such, I’ll work to keep you better apprised of the wonderful resources the Stamps Library is collecting and assorted other topics throughout the year. Through the Christmas holidays I have been hard at work selecting resources for a grant received for faith integration resources so I’ll be writing this up soon …several wonderful e-book databases and a great many new books are headed our way. Meanwhile, I’ll also be catching up on some of the book lists to let you know of recent acquisitions.

May your new year be blessed and in Luther’s words, “A glad new year to all the earth.”
