Meet Me

Hi Everyone!

 

It is good to connect with you again! I hope you are keeping well. As the government looks into helping the economy recover, we are reminded to continue to be cautious, keep safe and learn to live with the new norms. Likewise, as shared in the last issue of FLINT, my home has safety measures in place as we welcome you  to use our library resources again. A gentle reminder – do take note of the following updates as being a host, I am concerned for the well-being of both our guests and the staff who are helping to upkeep my home.

 

1. Library Services Have Resumed. Do take note of the changes!

 

  • The FES staff worker-in-charge of the student/graduate meetings is responsible to ensure that safety measures are followed if the meeting participants wish to access and use the library.
  • If the staff worker is unable to assist you in the use of the library, you may request the assistance of our library staff, Hilda, via email at library@fellowship.sg. Visits to the library to return and borrow books are by appointment only and available on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays (10 am to 5 pm).
  • Prior to visiting the library, you are strongly encouraged to check the availability of the books you wish to borrow via this link https://www.librarycat.org/lib/FESLibrary.
  • Remember to scan and check in the Safe Entry code before you enter our office. There is a Safe Entry code found at the entrance (door) of the library. You are also encouraged to download and use the Trace Together App.

 

BEFORE entering the library, the following safety measures apply (the instructions are put up at the entrance of the library):

  • Keep your mask on at all times while in the library.
  • There cannot be more than 7 people where the library is. If you are a walk-in and there are already 7 people in the library space, entry will be declined for your safety and interest.
  • Your temperature will be taken when you enter. You will be refused entry should your temperature be above 37.5°C.
  • Please ensure that you are at least 1 metre away from the other users around you.
  • You may use the markings on the floor to help you observe social distancing while using the library.
  • Please sanitise your hands with the sanitisers provided in the Book Drop Trolley (green trolley) before proceeding to use the library.
  • Please remember to check out of the Safe Entry code when you exit the library.

 

2. Extension of Paid Library Membership (For Alumni & Public)
For those of you who have paid for the library membership and the expiry of your account was dated April 2020 and after, we will be extending your membership by 4 months in view of the break during the Circuit Breaker.

 

3. Termination of Our WhatsApp Services
We regret to inform you that the mobile number for FES Library services has been terminated.

 

4. Savings For Our Alumni
We are pleased to inform you that we have rolled out a lifetime membership for our alumni!!

 

Membership fees
Annual:               $15
For 10 years:     $150
Lifetime:             $100

 

5. FES Publications Have Gone Online!
Most of the books and monographs published by FES in recent years have been made available in E-book format at very affordable prices. You can search for these E-books at www.kobo.com. They are written specifically for those of us who are involved in student ministry. Feel free to drop me an email at library@fellowship.sg if you have any questions about the FES Library or our publications.

 

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy reading our books!
