Westwood Lutheran Church Library
One of the most valuable resources available for members of
If you need information-not only for religious matters-there are dictionaries of various sorts, atlases, encyclopedias, histories, and commentaries on the Bible.
For inspiration there are prayer and devotional books, books on living the Christian Life and life stories of many notable, fascinating people. If you want something for relaxation, there are old and new novels, dramas, poetry and even "humor."
There are picture books and read-to-me books for small children; storybooks for older children; devotions and books on many subjects of interest to teens; and adult material on every kind of topic. Stop in the library and find what it has that will meet your interests and concerns.
The library is open Monday through Friday during the day and Sunday between services. A Library Ministry Team member is typically available to help during weekdays and Sunday mornings.
The library has two wings, East and West. The East wing houses all children and parent oriented materials including science, art, literature and health. The West wing houses all religion, biographies, history, adult fiction, reference books, and periodicals. The West wing has a card catalog for ALL the books, videos. The Dewey system is used in cataloging materials.
Books can be checked out for one month; videos for one week. DVDs are available for the weekly church service. All items can be renewed at any time.
Instructions for checking out materials are located in both wings. There is a "return books" bin in each wing and another by the middle South entrance to the building (opposite the Deck).
Note: The church library is very open - it depends on each user making sure the Library Ministry Team is aware of materials that have been checked out - and then returned. There are no fines for late returns - but be considerate of others who may be waiting for the material.
Book donations are welcome. Donations that cannot be used at Westwood are passed on to other churches organizations. Monetary donations are always accepted to maintain the library. Gifts of books in memorial or honor of a loved one are also accepted.
