Bernice Nailen Memorial Library

Church libraries play a significant role in enriching our lives and supporting us at every stage of our life’s journey. We invite you to celebrate National Library Week, which is observed from April 7th to April 13th, 2024. The primary goal of our church library ministry is to gather and provide Christian-oriented books and materials for the adults and children in our congregation to help them seek inspiration and comfort and strengthen their faith. This year’s theme is “Ready, Set, Library!” We encourage you to visit the Bernice Nailen Memorial Library any time during the week during church hours. Library Volunteers are available to assist on Sundays from 11:30 to 11:50 am.

The library has print titles for all ages (preschool – adult).  The collection includes fiction, Bible study, devotional, Christian life, Methodism, other religions, nature, health, parenting, relationships, biography, history and other subjects.

The Magazine Trading Basket is always available to recycle your “old” (no more than 3 months old) or take (no need to return) a magazine.

The library is open on Sunday mornings and during the week. 

Curious about what’s in our church Library? The Bernice Nailen Memorial Library has something for everyone—fiction, nonfiction, magazines, and children’s materials. Stop in the library and CHECK IT OUT!

  • Please write your name and address on the card at the back of the book.
  • Stamp the date due (3 weeks) on the card and the date due slip in the book.
  • Please leave the card on the desk.
  • Please renew your book if you need more time to read and enjoy the book.
