Librarian’s teach important lessons in our Bethel. Their duty is “to encourage a desire for good literature, arts and sciences”. Our goals this year are to show the many varied ways Librarian’s Reports can be given, and to ‘report’ on our wonderful organization. There are 6 projects to work on throughout this Supreme Guardian Council year. At the end of the year, we are hoping to be able to compile all of the wonderful work done by the daughters, and share their fabulous ideas! We will be spotlighting some of the submitted projects on Facebook.
See the due dates at the bottom of each project. (Working ahead is always encouraged!) Daughters submitting 4-6 projects throughout the year will be recognized at Supreme Session 2022 in Port Huron, Michigan. Submit your projects to Mom Sheryl Bertram via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure the subject line of your email starts with ‘Librarian’s Project Entry’.
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, the project that is listed as due on October 1st will be a ‘bonus’ project that can be turned in at any time before July of 2022! We hope to see many entries and lots of creativity!
