Library at Grantham Church
We welcome everyone to check out the items in our library at Grantham Church.
We have a wonderful assortment of books, including children’s books, young adult books, novels, books to promote personal and communal growth, commentaries, and reference books, as well as other resources to assist you as you travel on your spiritual journey!
Curbside service or mailbox delivery is available upon request.
Your Privacy is Important
Do you ever hesitate to borrow something from a library because the topic of the item speaks to a very private need and you want to avoid the speculation of others? To help maintain your privacy, you may sign out an item as "Anonymous."
If you find you need it longer than the standard two-week loan period, we ask that you notify our librarian so she knows who to contact if someone else requests the item. At no time will your name be put on the sign-out card for anyone to see. Rest assured that your interest in the item will be kept confidential.
The Fruit of the Spirit
The library offers a year-long Reading Challenge for people of all ages on a designated theme. For each four books read, the reader has a chance in a drawing at the end of the year for a $50 gift card from a Christian bookstore.
The 2023 Reading Challenge theme is “The Fruit of the Spirit.” To participate, you may browse the books on the Reading Challenge cart outside the library and/or read books from your own bookshelf or e-reader on the Holy Spirit and/or any of the fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. This challenge is for all ages (including pre-readers who have books read to them) and will continue until the end of December 2023.
2ND TUESDAYS @ 7PM | ZOOM
The Library Book Chat meets monthly on the second Tuesdays via Zoom to take turns telling others about an inspiring book, with a variety of fiction and nonfiction presented. All ages are welcome; if any children or youth attend, they are given priority at the beginning of the sessions. Contact Edie Asbury to be included in the invitation each month.

Other Library Resources
We are lucky to have a lot of gifted writers at our church! Many members of Grantham Church’s community have written books and articles, which you can access through the church library.
The church also has a wide selection of large-print books for those who have difficulty reading small print.
If you have any questions please contact our church librarian, Edie Asbury.
