Omer Westendorf founded World Library Publications in 1950 in Cincinnati, Ohio, as World Library of Sacred Music (WLSM). In 1955 WLSM published The People's Hymnal which was widely used throughout the United States and became a standard hymnal in many Catholic parishes. During this period, Omer authored "God's Blessing Sends Us Forth," "Where Charity and Love Prevail," and other notable, classic hymns. The J. S. Paluch Company acquired World Library Publications (WLP) in 1971 as a source of liturgical music for worship resources. WLP produces individual octavos and choral music series, recordings, videos, books, collections of music for worship. WLP also provides music workshops and choral reading sessions.
