Children's Selections

There is a children's section with books for infants through early teens, located in the Lawrence Library on the first floor of the Parish House. This is a wonderful place for parents to come during Midweek, Sunday School or Nursery School hours to browse through the books with younger siblings.

Small Group Ministry Shelf

Browse through the Small Group Ministry Shelf in the Lawrence Library for resources for Small Groups.

Borrowing a Book

Come by the Parish House to browse and borrow a book anytime during office hours using the self check-out system. On Sunday after 10am worship at the church, a library volunteer is available to assist you at the Library table. 

Checking Out a Book

The books are shelved by call number under the Dewey System according to author and topic. A white loose-leaf folder containing a library catalog is displayed in the Lawrence Library. Books in the catalogs are listed by subject, author and title. Up to date listings and availability of materials may be researched on the computer in the Lawrence Library. 

The check out process is easy - pull out the card from the front of the book; write your name, date and phone on the card; drop the card in the basket labeled "Check out Cards"; take the book home and enjoy reading. Return the book at your leisure... and pick up another!
