The FBCG Library

East Campus Library

Check out a book today! The main church library is in the process of being relocated to the main level of the East Campus. The library houses more than 10,000 items including books, audiobooks on CD, and DVDs. At anytime the East Campus is open, resources may be returned to the mailbox at the end of the library hallway.

East Campus Library Hours: The East Campus Library is temporarily closed for the remainder of the summer while it is being relocated as a part of our Growing to Serve ministry expansion project. However, you may continue to return books and DVDs in the marked blue mailbox in the East Campus lobby. During the summer months, we encourage you to check out books at our West Campus location.
