First Presbyterian Church Library

Welcome!

The First Presbyterian Church Library has hundreds of books, DVDs, and other resources to help you and your family grow in your Christian faith. We have materials for adults, for men and women, for children, for teens, and for Seniors. We have fiction books spanning every genre, theology books that delve into life’s deepest questions, books on prayer and discipleship, and many commentaries and other resources that will help you dig deeper into the Bible. We also have a collection of classic and contemporary videos and audio resources, including dramas and comedies as well as non-fiction documentaries. We have a small bookstore where you can buy new books recommended by Pastor Eric and books tied our current focus as a church. 
 

Location and Hours

We are located in Fellowship Hall, and we are open for use before and after the church services on Sundays. If you haven’t visited us yet, or if you haven’t visited us recently, drop by! We’ve been adding, pruning, and re-organizing our resources, and we’ve even started an online catalog.

Library News and Updates

One More Week for Easter Books!

This Sunday (March 25), Palm Sunday, is your last chance to pick up books on Easter and Good Friday before Easter! The Library will be closed on Easter Sunday (April 1), so make sure to stop by this Sunday, so you don’t miss out.
 
You can take a look at our books about Easter and Good Friday in our online catalog here. If you already looked there last week be sure to check again because we have added some books to that collection. We have many books (and DVDs) for adults, children, and families dealing with different aspects of Easter and Good Friday and why they are so significant. Make sure to stop by the library on Sunday and see all the books!
 
We also have two copies of the book When God Weeps by Joni Eareckson Tada and Steven Estes available for checkout. If you were in church last Sunday, you may remember Elder Dan O’Connor‘s moving prayer which involved reading a selection of this book out loud. If you are interested in the rest of the book, you can check it out this Sunday!
 
The FPC Library is open before and after the service on Sunday mornings. You can contact us by sending us an email here!

We have books and DVDs for adults, children, and families! All our Easter books for children as well as some of our Easter DVDs and books for adults can be found in our online catalog here. When they are not being displayed, our adult books on Easter can be found in the Non-Fiction section under the number 263.93  and our children’s books on Easter can be found in our Children’s section under the heading Easter.

Books on Missions!

This Sunday, March 11, the FPC Library will be displaying our books on missions and missionaries! We have many fascinating stories of great Christian missionaries and their ministries.
 
These books are not yet in our online catalog, so you have to stop by on Sunday and browse them in person. When these books are not being displayed they can be found in our non-fiction section under the number 266. We are continually working on getting all our non-fiction catalogued into our online system. However, our other books and materials (including all our fiction, biographies, children’s and youth books, and DVDs) are available to be browsed in our online catalog here.

Have you ever wanted to know more or have something explained about the Holy Spirit? This Sunday (March 4), the FPC Library will be displaying books about the Holy Spirit!
