Happy Mother’s Day! “… when the going gets tough (endless diapers, continual messes, lack of personal time, etc.), moms are often tempted to quit their “mom‐job.” The enemy has laid intentional traps cleverly designed to discourage and redirect a woman towards self rather than family. Be the Mom: Overcome Attitude Traps and Enjoy Your Kids introduces the reader to seven Mom Traps that may be preventing you from a full, joy‐filled life.” (Publisher) Check out the “Mom” display in the foyer library area.
ATTENTION LIBRARY PATRONS: PLEASE take a few seconds to check out the materials you would like to borrow. All we need is your name or patron number and the library bar code that is on the front upper left corner of each item. Right now we have several items missing. When other patrons ask for them and they can’t be located, we don’t know whether they are “out” or whether they are lost and need to be replaced. Please help us make our lending library a great resource for our church family. (Linda Barber, Church Library Director)
Church Library Hours: Wednesdays on the College Street Campus from 10:00 a.m. until 7:15 p.m. Sundays at the Boyce Thompson Campus – before and after worship hours.
CHECKOUT POLICY: Books and audio materials are loaned for a period of two weeks with the option to renew unless there is a waiting list. Special arrangements can be made for longer loan periods if needed. At the present time the library collection numbers over 5,000 items: fiction and non-fiction books for adults, youth, and children; videos; CD’s; books-on-tape; and reference materials. We are constantly adding to our collection using our Selection Policy as a guideline, and welcome suggestions for items to be added. We accept gifts to purchase books in memory of and in honor of someone you love.
