Checkout Policy

Check-out is self-service. Cards on the back of books should be signed, dated, and left in the check-out box. Books may be checked out for three weeks and should be returned to the library when it is open or to the church office when the library is closed.

McKenzie Library

McKenzie Library is Trinity’s adult resource library, which features materials for personal, intellectual, and spiritual growth. The library’s volumes include books on Methodism, Christianity, world religions, theology, devotions, parenting, and social issues, among others. The library is named for Guy and Sarah McKenzie, who were generous supporters of Trinity and its library. A large reference collection contains Bible commentaries, concordances, dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, and contemporary and historical United Methodist materials.

Carolyn Hart Children’s Library

The Carolyn Hart Memorial Children’s Library includes colorful picture books, Bibles, and some reference material appropriate for preschoolers and children in elementary school. Topics include Bible stories, contemporary stories emphasizing Christian beliefs and values, books on Christian holidays, and biographical or historical accounts. This library collection is named for Carolyn Hart, a long-time elementary Sunday School superintendent who left a bequest to create a children’s library at Trinity.
