Broadway Church has a fantastic thriving library, now with a brand new look! The library is now totally computerized; including the check-out system and computerized inventory to make looking for a book really easy. The library team have also re-stocked the library with dozens of new books; from children’s stories, to Adult Fiction and Non-Fiction books, Biographys, Care Group studies and more! Come and enjoy the wonderful world of reading in our newly revised and improved library.
The Library is located off the hallway between the Sanctuary and the Office building. If you are in the Sanctuary looking at the front where the worship band is located, take the door on the left of the stage (by the piano) and you’ll arrive at the entrance to the Library. Enjoy!
The library has Christian books that are Fiction, Non-Fiction, Children’s Books and Teen Series. There is also a collection of DVD’s and videos that you can check out.
Are you interested in helping in the library? We are looking for people who love reading and who enjoy helping other people discover the experience of getting lost in a great book.
Are you interested in writing Book Reviews? We are looking for people who will read our library books and write a review for the website. If you are that person, contact Elsie Friesen: firstname.lastname@example.org
