SAINT JOHN ORTHODOX CHURCH LIBRARY

 

Our library and this website is here to support the educational activities and spiritual growth of the children and adults in our parish and of inquirers of the Faith wherever they are.

Saint John Library started out over ten years ago with a small collection of about 200 books which were gathered over the years by our clergy and parishioners, The library has now grown to over 1300 books, over 400 CDs and DVDs, and current and back issues of 12 periodicals.

A  catalog of resources is available in the library. The links below give local patrons and those not within driving distance 0f St. John access to user-friendly lists of our materials and to all services offered by the librarian.  And, if you want to start a library at your parish, you’ll find below an encouraging, detailed article on how to begin one!  Click on the following links to visit the catalogs of books, media and magazines and more!!!
