The EvFree Library has over 11,500 books and media, largely from an evangelical Christian perspective, though some items from a different persuasion may be included to aid a believer in research. Our mission is to provide resources that will undergird our church’s ministry; however, the Library is open to the community. Our collection includes the following for adults, youth, and children: fiction and nonfiction, magazines, audio material, and movie DVDs. We focus on titles that are not ordinarily available at your public library. We are located in the Commons building, adjacent to The Well.
You are encouraged to take full advantage of this church-supported resource as you enjoy fruitful hours of reading and listening. Using the online catalog, you can explore the library’s holdings from the comfort of your home or office and then come in to borrow the items you want. Contact the library to create an account.
Monday through Friday: 10:00am-2:00pm
Check Out Information
Stop by the library counter during library hours to open an account. All library materials may be checked out for three weeks. Magazines may be taken out and returned on an honor basis. We do have limits on the amount of materials that may be checked out at one time:
15 Books / 5 CDs / 5 DVDs / 5 Magazines
Self-Checkout is available at the library counter and in the upstairs portion of the library when the building is open but library staff are not present. To borrow a book or audiobook (CD), fill out the orange card with the day’s date and your contact information. Then write the barcode of each item on the orange card. The barcode is located on the left edge of the front cover on a white sticker. For example: T31748 or T26982. Place the card in the slot of the large box.
Renewing Library Materials
You may extend the due date on any items you have checked out for a maximum of six months unless another person is waiting for them. To renew items, stop by the Library, log in to your personal account on the online catalog or contact the Library.
Do not reply to the weekly no-return email you receive.
Returns & Fines
All items can be returned by placing them in the black bin at the Library counter or through the book drop on the south side of The Well/Library building. A fine of 10 cents per day will be charged for each item that is overdue with a one-day grace period.
The Library accepts donations of gently used books, CDs and DVDs that have a Christian point-of-view. You may bring your donations to the Library between 8am–6pm. To help us, please bring small amounts (one or two bags or boxes) at a time and clearly label them "donation". Items may be added to our collection or made available on our used-books sale shelves to support the library.
USED BOOKSALES: Used books are always available on the “Pre-owned Books for Sale” shelves for a donation of any amount. Periodically the Library will hold a Used Books Sale in which all items are also available for a voluntary donation of any price. The proceeds of these “sales” enable our staff to increase the number of new items the Library offers.
How You Can Help Us
Please add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (for weekly emails) to your address list so that our emails get through your spam filter. We communicate with most library patrons by email -- this saves our ministry money and time.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: The Library is looking for volunteers on weekdays or Sundays to aid patrons and/or to help with the following “behind the scenes” responsibilities: book mending, cataloging books and videos, updating catalog for better access, processing donated books, and other projects. We’d love to have you join us! For more info, please contact the Library Manager.
