Great Biographies!

All of our biographies have been catalogued and can be searched for in our online catalog here. We have biographies for adults, youth, and children. Recently we moved our adult biographies to a more convenient and accessible location, so they are easier to find and check out. Stop by and take a look on Sunday!

Books and Resources on Prayer

The next one will be Tuesday, May 1.
Our prayer books are catalogued in our online catalog and can be seen here. We have books suitable for both adults and children, so everyone in the family can be involved in our focus on prayer. When they are not being displayed our books on prayer can be found in the Non-Fiction section under the number 248.3. Make sure to stop by on Sunday and take a look!
