The purpose of the library is to provide a wide variety of materials for use by members of the congregation to help in nurturing personal growth in faith and understanding of Christian life, to relate to the beliefs and ways of the SBC at large as well as the Christian faith, and to enrich the programs and ministry work at Westside. Items selected for this collection generally reflect our denomination’s doctrines and perspectives and provide specialized resources not usually found in public libraries.
The Children’s Corner
This area provides a special place for children to browse through books suitable for their ages and developing readings skills, and for parents to find items for family reading time at home. Sunday school teachers can find materials suitable to enhance their curriculum. Types of materials include board and picture books, easy readers and Bible stories.
Older children will find books selected for more advanced readers from early elementary to adolescence, including fiction and non-fiction.
Youth and Adult Reading
This includes different versions of the Bible, Biblical studies, social and moral issues, Christian and spiritual life, church history, church leadership, family and interpersonal relationships, other religions, and devotional life. A good selection of fiction and biographies is also available.
CDs, recordings, audio cassettes, video cassettes and DVD’s are available for viewing in the library or for check-out.
