Member Services COVID-19 Statement

Dear Christian Record Member, 

Christian Record Services, Inc. implements Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health department safety measures to help ensure the safety of staff and the safety of members who receive library services. As of May 11, 2020, Christian Record has resumed all library services. If you prefer not to receive library mail at this time, please email services@christianrecord.org or call 402-488-0981, option 3.

 

Lending library procedures:

All Christian Record employees who process library materials wear a mask and gloves. Returned member mail is quarantined for at least seven days, before restocking, to allow time for the virus that causes COVID-19 to die off. In addition, Christian Record and postal employees are advised to follow CDC recommended prevention methods that include avoiding close contact with people who are sick, avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, staying home if they are sick, covering coughs and sneezes with tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash, cleaning and disinfecting frequently-touched objects and surfaces, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and using a 60-percent alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The CDC and World Health Organization’s (WHO) guidance continues to indicate there is no evidence the coronavirus is spreading through the mail. According to the WHO, the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low, and the risk of catching the virus from a package that has been moved, traveled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures is also low. Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, the USPS recommends that when receiving mail customers follow the same CDC daily life guidelines that include washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol after accepting deliveries or collecting mail from a post office or home mailbox.

We also encourage members to continue to access the magazines you enjoy in audio, Braille, and large print via your online Christian Record library account at Lib.Guide. If you need help setting up an account, please email Services@ChristianRecord.org.

The Braille edition of the second quarter 2020 Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide has been mailed.

Please also visit Christian Record’s website (https://www.christianrecord.org) and social media pages to stay connected. You may also contact us at Services@ChristianRecord.org

We pray that the Lord will bless and keep each of you.

Sincerely,

Christian Record staff

According to the Social Security Administration in the United States, "Statutory blindness is defined in the law as central visual acuity of 20/200 or less in the better eye with the use of correcting lens. An eye which has a limitation in the field of vision so that the widest diameter of the visual field subtends an angle no greater than 20 degrees is considered to have a central visual acuity of 20/200 or less."

Additionally, Kenneth Jernigan, a former president of the National Federation of the Blind, wrote a wonderful article for the Future Reflections magazine in 2005, titled "A Definition of Blindness" [click on the BIG BLUE HEADING above to read the article].

Christian Record produces several Christian magazines and accepts articles on occasion for publication. This page provides information about which magazines are currently accepting submissions.
