The library tries to be a resource to the other ministries and people of the church. Help can be found on how to grow in your spiritual walk, have a quiet time, or pray; how to be a better leader, board member, teacher, parent, spouse, or friend; teaching suggestions, Bible studies and aids, mission information, biographies, Christian views of current events, inspirational fiction; videos and audio tapes for learning or enjoyment.



Library Layout

We use an abbreviated version of the Dewey Decimal system for cataloging. Lower numbers start in the northwest corner and continue to the east wall. Then to the free-standing shelving, again right to left back to the west end. The side of this unit facing the room contains children’s selections and the free-standing unit by the desk contains children's fiction. Dewey numbers continue on the south wall with lower numbers toward the east. Teen items can be found on the east wall. Also, on the east wall are some reference materials and videos. Fiction can be found on the west wall with the end of the alphabet finding a home on top of the free-standing unit. Novels with Biblical characters are lower shelving north east, biographies are on the south wall after the Dewey numbers finish. More children's videos are by the entrance. Nest series DVDs Bible stories are on revolving rack on west wall.
