Wow! This video library-by-mail really delivers! I was impressed with the nice nineteen-page catalog, which lists and describes signed Bible studies, children's programs, movies, skits, Joy of Signing lessons, videos re: marriage and family, missions, music, Promise Keepers, sermons, and Deaf convention workshops. I called in my order (six videos may be borrowed for up to six weeks), and within a few days, received a postcard listing the items which were on their way. Soon after, the videos arrived. With each video, there is a response card to send back with requests for more videos. Self-adhesive mailing labels are also included. Some of the tapes are presented in ASL, others in English-like "contact sign." Some feature signed presentations, others, interpreted material.
If you enjoy sign language and are interested in religious subjects, this library is something to see!
