Visit FPC’s Library on Re-Connect Sunday, Sept. 10!

 
Did you know that FPC has a library in Fellowship Hall filled with books and DVDs and audio resources just waiting to be used? If you are looking for high quality resources for your children or yourself to help you grow in your Christian faith, stop by and visit! We have a large collection of children’s books, adult Christian fiction, Bible commentaries and reference books, and DVDs. If you haven’t stopped by recently, come and check us out!
 
We have been pruning, cleaning, and adding books and resources during the summer. More than  100 new resources have been added to the collection and are just waiting for you to use them! All of our new books have been entered in the online catalog for easy reference. The Biography section has also been completely catalogued and we are beginning to enter our non-fiction books into our online catalog (we entered our fiction books last year). 
 
Checking out library materials is quick and simple… just take the library card attached to the book or DVD and fill out the date, your name, your phone or email, and then drop the card in the basket on the desk in the middle of the library. The library is open before and after the worship service on Sunday mornings. Checking out materials is self-service  and can be done whether or not someone is staffing the library.
 
Stop by our Church Library on Re-Connect Sunday (Sept. 10) and enter a raffle for an Amazon.com gift card plus get a free gift from FPC’s past! And kids can sign up for our new reading program, where they can win awards based on the books they read!
