The library of Trinity Presbyterian Church exists to help all members of the Trinity family grow in their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith, and to equip them to carry out the ministries to which God calls them.

All books and other resources in the library are available for checking out by members of the Trinity family. There is no charge for their use and no strict limits on the length of time they may be checked out.

The library seeks to make available books helpful in individual and group study, enrichment, inspiration, and encouragement. While most of these books are factual, works of fiction are not excluded. Particular emphasis is placed on subjects pertaining directly to the history and practice of the Christian faith and to the Presbyterian understanding of it.

Suggestions for the acquisition of books for use in group study are welcomed and will be adopted insofar as space and budgets permit.

Gifts of books, within the limitations of space and the time of volunteer librarians will be gratefully accepted. A committee of Trinity members will consider and determine which books best fit and expand the purposes of the library. Books that cannot be housed in the library will from time to time be offered without charge to members of the Trinity family. When appropriate, other suitable homes will be sought.

 

Instructions for checking books in: 

Look in the back of the book for the circulation card, sign it, and stamp it with the date stamper, which should be three weeks from the time it is checked out. Place the card in the circulation tray in the middle of the book truck on the top shelf.

 

 

Instructions for checking books out:
