“Model Library to Be Open Conference Saturdays,” Ensign, Mar. 1977, 92
With the announcement by the First Presidency that general conference sessions no longer will be held on Fridays (Ensign, February 1977), the model meetinghouse library located on the main floor east wing of the Church Office Building is scheduled to be open on conference Saturdays from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
“We want to make the facility available to conference visitors, especially those from out of town,” says Jack L. Pickrell, meetinghouse library coordinator.
“In the past, we have had visitors come into the model library on Friday at general conference time. Visitors can see how a meetinghouse library might be laid out and how equipment or resource material might be stored. We think that the model library should be a valuable resource for priesthood leaders who attend conference and then go home to organize their own meetinghouse libraries. We have handout literature available, also.”
