St. Matthew’s Library is one of the best in the area, with a constantly updated collection of books and DVDs. The Children’s section is a great way to get children excited about learning about God and his love for us. The library is accessible when the church is open. It is a warm, comfortable gathering spot for individuals or small groups.
History and Mission Blessed with over 50 years of history, the library was founded in the memory of Roy R. Stauff and is dedicated to share God’s message through print and visual format. The goals of the Library are threefold: to provide a service ministry to the entire St. Matthew’s congregation, to provide a ministry to strengthen the education program with the church and to provide an inspirational ministry to individuals as well as serve the community.
Resources St. Matthew’s Library is a lending library filled with fiction, non-fiction, Bibles, study guides, children’s books, CD’s, DVD’s, and magazine resources. All resources available are in an effort to bring people closer to God during many facets of life whether they are birth or death, health or illness, relationships, workplace, personal enrichment or enjoyment. A self check out system is used. Renewals/questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
