The Christian Education Committee invites you to see the “new” church library!
Since the church renovation, the church library is now divided between two locations.
The children’s materials are on the second floor near the children’s Sunday school classrooms. The library is in the far right corner of the children’s area with the photocopier immediately outside the door. The children’s collection serves preschool through the 5th grade and is open for teachers and parents with their children at any time.
The adult and teen circulating materials and the Elnora Paul Reference Collection are on the third floor near the Church Avenue elevator. From the sanctuary, exit the door nearest the pulpit, go past the stairwell and turn left at the water fountain. The library is just beyond the elevator. The adult library has keypad access for church members to use at any time. Instructions are posted at the computer terminal for using the catalog. Shelves are labeled to help locate materials.
The library is staffed in both locations on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings to provide help.
Our library catalog is available online to help you quickly and efficiently find what you need. To search or browse the library collection, please click on the following link:
PROCEDURE DURING THE PANDEMIC:
LIBRARY BOOKS ARE AVAILABLE!
You may request books through the church library’s email firstname.lastname@example.org and your books will be checked out to you. They will be held for you for pick up inside the cabinet immediately to the left of the elevator outside the church office door. Return your books to the inside of the same cabinet.
Please use the library catalog at https://fpcknox.follettdestiny.com/ to search for books by title, author, or keyword. Just note the title and author and send an e-mail message to email@example.com. You may also request books on a specific topic and a librarian will make selections for you. Please include your FULL NAME when making a request! You will be notified when your book is ready for pickup. The email will be checked at least once a week on Wednesday afternoon.
There is no specific limit on the reasonable number of books you may check out at any one time. Books are ordinarily checked out for one month with the option for renewal. Reference books are not available for checkout.
The library is waiting to serve you.
