Books, cd’s, dvd’s and  VHS tapes for preschool, children, youth and adults

How do I check out an item in the library?

Are there fines for late books?
No, just return the book as soon as possible.  We do want it back! 

What happens if I damage or lose a book?
You will be asked to pay for the book, because we will need to replace it.  We rarely have damaged or lost books, so don’t worry that your child will damage a book.  We want children to love books and learn to care for them. 

Where do I return items or place donations to the library?
There are drawer cabinets with drawers marked for item returns and donations in the library, one in the entrance to the sanctuary building, and in the preschool foyer.

What if I forget to return a book?
An email will be sent to remind you that an item is overdue.  Just bring it in.

How can I find out which items the library has?
Ask the volunteer on duty OR look an item up in the catalog on the computer station located by the window.

Connecting with God, Connecting with Others, Connecting Others with God

At Swift Creek we are all about making connections. The most important connection is the one we can have with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Once that connection is established we want to make connections in our homes and with the rest of the church family. A strong church is built by people of strong faith and individual homes where God is worshiped and honored. Read More...
