The PARISH LIBRARY catalog is now online! Click here.
The Parish Library has a large and rich collection of books and video including extensive information and support for cancer patients and their families. The library also sponsors many programs for the children of St. Paul's such as reading programs, storytelling and celebrations.
Volunteers assist in the management and maintenance of the library that includes developing recommendations for new acquisitions. Training in librarianship is not required, just a love of books, children and learning.

St. Paul’s has a wonderfully cozy place to visit, rest, get informed, tickle those little grey cells, and seems to be somewhat of a secret…the St. Paul’s Adult Library. Tucked away in a quiet corner on the Lower Level of the building, we have approximately 3,000 books waiting for you to check out and take home with you. Topics include spirituality and prayer, biographies, fiction, church history, Biblical commentary, and lots more. Just look for the new signage to find us downstairs.
Some of the newest books to consider:
- Bible Women: “Step into the world of sacred women – mothers, prophets, grandmothers, warriors, prostitutes and murderers. It is their world and why they matter comes from the stories found in the Bible.”
- Islam, a Short History: This book reveals a faith which inspires people around the world, and is one of the three major religions. Today, it is especially important to understand this religion.
- Night by Elie Wiesel: This book jumped to the top of the NY Times best-sellers in a recent re-release. Wiesel, a Nobel recipient and professor, died last month. A new translation was completed and is now in our library. If you haven’t read it, you should; and if you have, we recommend you consider reading it again.
- Precious Ramotswe is back in book 16. This series is a favorite at St. Paul’s…come check out The Woman Who Walked in Sunshine. Parable of Joy: Reflections on the Wisdom of John: “Magnificent and a moving commentary translated from the original Greek. Read the thoughts and feelings of living as a disciple of Jesus.”
In addition to books on all subjects, you’ll find helpful librarians, cozy chairs and pillows, beautiful icons and a cheery window filled with plants. We look forward to seeing you soon!
