Alabama areas, Gathered by Grace (GBG) is a ministry that works to engage young

that are nearby or where access to newer reading materials is limited. The
small “library” cases hold new and gently used books that can be borrowed free

socio-economic standing,” said Rev. Tiffany C. Chaney, pastor of Gathered by
Grace. “Our hope is to expose local readers to a wealth of enlightening
subjects and stories.”
