Borrowing Items

To borrow library materials, congregational members and friends may checkout materials by themselves, whenever they visit the Church Library. The Sunday due date (4 weeks in the future) is set by the Church Librarian on the Date Due rubber stamp (located on the ink stamp pad in the checkout area). When borrowing Church Library Materials do the following:

  1. Remove the book card from the book pocket (located in the back of the book)
  2. Print Borrower's first and last name in book card
  3. Use Date Due rubber stamp to stamp Sunday due date (4 weeks in the future) on:
    --Book card (to left of Borrower's name)
    --Book pocket due date (in book)
  4. Place book card in front of Borrower's file (located in checkout area)

When returning Church Library Materials, place returned library materials in the checkout area. Church Librarian will place the book card back in its pocket and shelve the book.

New Library Materials

On a regular basis, descriptions of interesting new Church library books will be submitted for inclusion in the Sunday Worship Bulletin. On occasion, important articles from library magazines will also be included.
