Our Collection

The library currently houses over two thousand books dealing with such diverse topics as church history, theology, world religions, Bible history and interpretation, prayer, human relationships, Bible commentaries, Bible dictionaries and other reference works. The collection includes a dedicated children’s section with age-appropriate materials for preschoolers and older children. A large portion of the book collection is available for circulation. In addition to books, the library also features various DVDs, CDs and videotapes. Numerous archival records relating to St. Matthew’s are now housed in the library and date back to the founding of the church. They include photographs, church bulletins, sermons, Vestry minutes and other materials. A large portion of these materials have now been digitized for the convenience of current users and to protect the records of our church’s heritage. A wonderful display window allows hallway passerby to see a rotating display of various St. Matthew’s artifacts and other materials. Additional items are displayed in the library itself from time to time. A computer is also located in the library for users to conduct online research or to simply surf the net on occasion. Although young users will need to be monitored by their parents, the computer will certainly be useful to those needing to find resources beyond the library itself.
