Welcome to FUMC Library, located in Room 12 adjacent to Crosstalk Sunday School classroom. We have nearly one thousand books of Christian-oriented material and Bible reference studies.  Much of the collection is comprised of devotional studies.

The Library is accessible two different ways.  Open hours for June and July are Sundays immediately following the 10:00 AM service, and Tuesdays, 9:00-10:00. Regular books may be checked out for two weeks with a one-time renewal via email for an additional two weeks. Reference books may be checked out for one week with a one-time renewal for one week via email.

Or, you can search for books online and send an email request.  The books will be pulled on Tuesday morning and left at the front desk of the church for you to pick up at your convenience. To request books, list the author, title, and classification, along with your name, phone, and email address. Send your request to:  fumclibrary2021@gmail.com.
