Vision for Library Expansion and Development
As we have continued to expand and add new resources to the collection, we are finding that while adequate, the existing library facilities, will not allow for any further growth both in terms of providing additional resources as well as the sorts of programs that we would like to be able to offer.
With this in mind, we have been actively pursuing various options for library expansion and relocation over the past several years -- and at the same time waiting on God's timing in the process -- and so as we move into this next stage of library development, we have been experiencing His leading in providing a wonderful facility at Balbinova 10 located right in "the heart of the city" and so we know this is God's provision and timing to move forward.
Need and Opportunities
We have identified several specific needs and opportunities, which a larger expanded facility would afford including:
The new location will meet four key criteria... even greater VISIBILITY as well as ACCESSIBILITY (access to all three main metro lines, trams, etc as well as adequate parking for those who drive) and at the same time APPROACHABILITY (street level and a non-institutional feel) remains a key need. AFFORDABILITY of course is the final factor involved.
Especially in reaching non-Christians, as a minimum we will need to move even closer to the marketplace -- and at the same time ensure that people are entering into a safe, warm, and inviting environment.
As we continue to pursue the possibilities to move to this larger and hopefully more permanent location, we also continue to make this a matter of major prayer and the active pursuit of God’s will in the future design for and development of the Prague Christian Library and surrounding space.
We are so very grateful for all the ways that God has provided over the years and so if you would like to partner with us through PRAYER or GIVING during this next stage of library development, please contact us for further detail or you can give a special gift by clicking HERE
