Collection

Our Media Library contains an intentionally wholesome collection of aides to research, inspiration, and entertainment.  There are many excellent resources for theological study, Baptist history, books written by our members, and a wide variety of other topics.  There are also a number of adult fiction books.  The youth section is a new feature that is slowly growing in number of fiction books.  The older-children section contains topical books and several shelves of fiction.  Chapter books are shown in a separate collection.  In the children's collection, there are HUNDREDS of picture books, "easy" readers, and fiction titles.  One bookcase holds books displayed by Dewey Decimal Number classification.  There are also DVD and VHS recordings of Bible studies and fictional characters.  We have approximately 3,000 titles!

Searching for a Book

The library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification system.  You can search for books and other media in our collection by (1) browsing the shelves, (2) using our library computer, or (3) searching our online catalog.

Donations

Donations to the library are welcomed; however, the library committee will determine which donated books or other media are appropriate for addition to our collection.  Please contact the committee if you have questions about donations.

Circulation

All materials may be checked out for a two-week period.  Materials may be renewed.  There is no limit to the number of items a patron may check out.  There is no late fee, but a member who loses a book or other material or does not return the material within six months will be asked to replace or pay for the items at the discretion of the committee chair.
