Can You Find the Library?

– 2nd Floor

– Next to the Director of Youth Ministries office

– Across the hall from rooms 211 & 212 

Located on the second floor — turn left from the elevator and then take two more left turns. Here you will find our collection of more than 3,000 books, reference items, videos & cassette tapes. There is a computer with a searchable card catalog as well as printed lists of all books in both alphabetic order of titles and alphabetic order of author’s names.

Checkout Procedures & Catalog Searches

Signs are posted in the library to assist with the checking out of materials and the operation of the computer catalog.

If you find a book particularly suitable for a specific topic please leave a note for the librarian. Care will be taken to include your suggestion into the computer card catalog so that others searching for specific topics may be better able to match the library offerings with their search criteria.

Library Committee Meeting Minutes, Monday, June 12, 2017 at 2:30 


Betty Lou Smithson has resigned from the committee. We will miss her.

New library books are being processed.

The library is on the FPC website [ Committees > Christian Education > Library ]

Church History Files:

This continues to be an active project. Pat Ludwig includes our article about the church history files in occasional issues of the FPC Newsletter and the Sunday bulletin, reminding church members of our request for donations and thanking them for the donations that have been made. That is making a difference ! As a result of the article in recent issues, several items have been donated for the history files.

Protestant Reformation Anniversary:

Books are on a cart in the library. Several books have been checked out.

Printed copies of the list of books about Martin Luther and the Reformation are available in the library.

Library committee members are reading books and are writing brief reviews of the books they have read. The reviews will be in issues of the FPC Newsletter during the summer.

Rally Day plans include a display in Stanton Hall using book covers and book reviews. It was decided to use our tripod display stands on a table in the northeast corner of Stanton Hall. The copies of our book reviews and the book covers will be mounted on bright colored paper.

Discussion: Books that committee members recommended will be added to the library collection. We are always interested in recommendations and suggestions of books for the library.

Committee members present: Mary Stewart Darden, Margaret Ann Gregory, Gwen Infantino, Anne Lanning, Ellen Matt, and Susie Rixey. Jacqui Horton was also present.

NEXT MEETING DATE: The committee will meet on Monday, August 14th at 2:30 to SET UP THE REFORMATION DISPLAY IN STANTON HALL.
