Latter-day Village is an online resource for LDS teachers and leaders. We offer memberships for various LDS church auxiliaries with specific content for each area as well as some original and third party mail order and downloadable products in our store.
LDV was formed in 2005 by merging two previous LDS subscription websites, PrimaryETC by Debra Woods and LDSSeminaryFiles by Tim Holder, both of which began in 1997. There have been many versions of LDV since then as technology, curriculum and user needs have changed.
