Previous years' manuals

Postby aerodamon » Sat Jan 03, 2015 1:18 pm

I am a fairly new clerk and am wondering what is typically done with the stacks of previous years, Priesthood/RS manuals.

Our storage closet is limited in size and bulging with old materials.

I hate to just toss such great reference material, but stashed away in a closet isn't better.

We normally let the meetinghouse library have them and ask them to give them to anyone who requests a manual for their home library.

The meetinghouse library policy recommends that 3 copies of each Teachings of the Presidents of the Church manual be kept in the library: ... s?lang=eng

I would recommend setting all the manuals out in a "free box" in a busy hallway of the church building with a note that says that anyone can take them home. I would also recommend encouraging people to use the Gospel Library app and order less manuals so that the same overflow doesn't happen every year.

Thanks for the replies. Very helpful.

I keep trying to figure how to ship this good reference material to developing countries that may speak English, but drawing a blank. :~)

I think we did much better this year on our curriculum order. So far only 3 copies have wandered back to the clerk's office. I did consult with the organization leaders for their recommendations on order amounts, so that helped.
