The Church Library Coordinating Committee and the Correlation of Meetinghouse Libraries

Author Cory Nimer,

In the 1950s, LDS meetinghouses had libraries managed by and for the Sunday School. S. Lyman Tyler, University Librarian at BYU, led the way to libraries being included in new buildings and the use of libraries as genealogical and study centers, stocked with Church-approved books, in the 1960s and 1970s. Under Church correlation, libraries returned to their former role as material centers. The need for libraries to stock several versions of approved KJV Bibles also contributed to the creation of the LDS Edition of the KJV Bible.
