Librarian - Pat Magyarics
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE (adopted April 1999)
The purpose of the library is to support the mission of the
church, to undergird its teaching, preaching, and
evangelistic efforts, and to help individuals develop an
understanding of the faith and their full potential as
children of God and workers in God’s kingdom.
The children’s and teen library is in the alcove at the
top of the stairs. There are more preschool books on the
bookshelf in the fellowship hall. Adult literature including
young adult, is in the room behind the sanctuary. The
library is open for use by members and friends of the church
of all ages any time the church is open and in use.
The library operates on the honor system and the librarian
is always ready to help anyone who has questions. Books are
signed out as per instructions posted on the library
bulletin board and may be checked out for a 4 week period.

The library committee searched through many programs to find
one that could be used to catalog books. There was also
communication with other churches and the Northeastern Ohio
Church and Synagogue Library Association. Church
members contributed to the setup of the library by building
shelves in the room behind the sanctuary, donating shelves
for the young people’s library, and donating the computer
and printer for cataloging.
