Gifts and Memorials
The gift of a book to the church library is a wonderful and lasting way to honor and remember special people in your life. The library staff will be happy to assist you with this commemoration.
The First Presbyterian Church Library offers a collection of books, periodicals and other materials which provides devotional, denominational, Christian and life enrichment information to support the mission of the church’s teaching, preaching and evangelistic endeavors. The goal is to assist the congregation’s search for an understanding of the faith and for all people to realize their full potential as children of God.
The church library is recognized as an important part of the ministry of the church. It supports religious education by providing access to books and magazines not generally found in the public library. In addition, the library offers material to enrich lives, deepen understanding, and offer spiritual nourishment and growth.
Everyone is welcome to use the library at any time. Assistance from the library staff is available on Tuesday mornings between 10:00 a.m. and noon.
