Our Church Library Mission:
The Immanuel Lutheran Church Library exists to help people connect to the life changing power of Jesus Christ.
We seek to enrich the spiritual and intellectual lives of our congregation by providing materials that encourage and support the ministries of the church.
The Immanuel Church library is a great place to find good reading materials for young and old alike to explore the Christian faith, to expand your knowledge of God’s word and His working in our life and our world today and to be inspired by some excellent Christian authors.
What's available at the library?
The collection contains adult and ‘Tween’ (ages 10-13) fiction and non-fiction books, as well as Board books, for ages 1-4, and easy reading books for the 5 – 10 year olds. We have a fine DVD section, a reference section including Old and New Testament commentaries, Bible dictionaries, atlases and concordances, as well as church magazines such as “Connections”.
Where is the library? When is it open?
The library is located across from the Pastors' offices on the second floor of the education wing and is open during church office hours: Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday mornings when a Board member is available to assist you.
How do I check-out materials?
The check out is by signing the book card in the front of the book or DVD and placing it in the small box on the desk. Books are usually checked out for 3 weeks, DVDs are checked out for one week only. Return all books and DVDs to the large box on the desk.
Donations of new and used Christian books, CDs, magazines, etc. are encouraged. However, they will be reviewed before being added to the collection. Special gifts to the library in memory or in honor of a loved one are also encouraged.
We encourage everyone to come for a visit, browse, and check out a good book or DVD.
Serving on the Library Board are Cheryl Abrams, Sandy Anenson, Linda Doyle, Susan Kinyon, and Sandy Hunt.
