Contact the Librarian: email@example.com
St. George’s Church is fully engaged in learning opportunities for spiritual growth, worship, parenting, and personal relationships. Our library is an amazing resource center for enriching these study and lecture experiences. Bible study participants will find a large selection of books to augment their studies and they may be checked out, while reference books, perhaps in greater depth, are to be used in the library.
Children and youth will find a great assortment of books in the juvenile section, books that answer serious theological questions in meaningful terms for their level, as well as books that are just plain fun.
The library purchases and lists new books on a regular basis. Did you know that you can remember or honor a friend or relative by selecting and paying for a book from the list? An appropriate name plate will be placed in the book.
Computer Available for Parishioners
A new computer for parishioner use is available in the St. George’s Library. All parishioners may use this computer which allows access to the Internet and has basic application software such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It also includes Logos Bible Study software which was graciously donated for this computer.
Books about the Holy Land
On the 2011 pilgrimage to the Holy Land a small group from St. George’s explored ways we might form a bridge with Christians who study and worship there. Dr. Teschan, one of St. George's parishioners, has prepared a list of books to broaden our understanding of the situation faced by this small number of faithful people.
Selected reading for “Helping Holy Land Christians” recommended to readers who wish to understand both the context and circumstances into which our assistance can be delivered to our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land.
The following books, and others, displayed in the church library may be checked out for your reading.
- Tolan, Sandy. The Lemon Tree: An Arab, A Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East
- Chacour, Elias. We Belong to the Land: The Story of a Palestinian Israeli who lives for peace and revolution
- Dekker, Ted and Carl Medearis. Tea with Hezbollah: Sitting at the Enemies' Table - Our Journey Through the Middle East
- Dalrymple, William. From the Holy Mountain: A Journey Among the Christians in the Middle East

- Wagner, Donald E. Dying in the Land of Promise: Palestine and Palestinian Christianity from Pentecost to 2000
New Books for Young (and Older) Readers
Did you know that several generations have added their favorite books to that old, old list of classic children’s books? Anne of Green Gables, Treasure Island, and
Little Women have lots of newer company now on the bookshelf. Our library has
added several new books that were favorites of many young readers, now grown up. Kids, check out a book and ask your grandmother if she read it when she was young. Parents and grandparents, read one of these books to a child and relive an earlier pleasure.
