4 the World Resource Distributors is dedicated to broadening evangelical educational outcomes and library effectiveness by appraising library processes, providing staff development, evaluating student use, recommending and supplying resources, and facilitating networking.
RECORD YEARS-RECORD OPPORTUNITIES
Our past two years were record breaking, phenomenal years. Over 200,000 books were shipped, dozens of schools helped, giving records broken, building repairs made, partnerships created, and more. Additional schools are asking for help. Thank you for the faithfulness of all involved-volunteers, prayer partners, financial supporters, and those with words of encouragement. Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
4 the World assists schools by doubling the size of holdings, passing accreditation standards, moving from print to computerized catalogues, weeding collections, updating electronic catalogues, repairing hundreds of books, training librarians and staff, developing procedures, evaluating holdings, recommending acquisitions, and answering hundreds of questions.
