Our West Campus Children’s Library is in need of someone to serve one Sunday morning per month between services to help families check out books, DVDs, and CDs. Contact Nancy Wong at email@example.com if you think this might be something you would enjoy.
The main church library is located in the “Fireside” room. The library houses approximately 9,000 items including books, audiobooks on CD, and DVDs. Anytime the East Campus is open, resources may be checked out using our new computer self-checkout system at the west end of the library. You may also search our library catalog for items on the computer. Our family library includes resources for infants through adults. Resources can be requested from the West Campus library for pickup at the East Campus.
A selection of books for young adults and adults is located on the north side of the lobby on the West Campus.

A library card is required to check out resources. Card applications are available on both campuses.
All members and friends of FBCG are welcome to check out materials.
Materials checked out from the library can be returned to either campus, regardless of the campus from which you checked out the materials. If you wish to renew an item, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, the name of the item, and the date to which you would like the item renewed.
Items may be requested using our online catalog, or request forms are available at the East Campus (Main) and West Campus Library. Books from either campus can be requested to be transferred to the other campus for pickup. New requests for purchases will be considered according to the budget and/or selection policy.
The library accepts new and used Christian books, DVDs and books on CD, all in good condition without markings. Materials should be published within the last 10 years, unless they are classics. Any materials that we are not able to use will be passed on to other libraries.
