Rosary Book clubs, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, are becoming a popular method of arousing interest in the reading of good Catholic literature. Books are passed in'a circle from one member to the next each month, just as fingers pass from one bead of the rosary to the next. There are approximately 14 Rosary'Book clubs which have been organized throughout the diocese. Seven of these books are in Freeport deanery, which in- dicates that many affiliates could make this a project in the coming year. Explanatory Skit A 15-mimtte skit, which ts en- tertaining and also motivates in- terest in the formatio/a of the book clubs, can be obtained from: Rosary Book Clubs, 555 Notr Dame Ave Chattanooga, Tenn. This could be a program for one of the regular meetings of the af- filiate, after which such clubs could be formed. This is the skit that was presented at the libraries and literature workshop last year at the institute in Sterling. This can also be the beginning of a parish library, as many Rosary Book dubs donate the books to the parish at the end of the year.
