Grace Library’s Wish List

Grace UMC Library is always researching possible books to be added to the collection for use by our church members. With a limited budget, selection process always means leaving out excellent books. One way to assist is by donations to the library specifically meant for book purchases. The library is also open to members suggesting books and providing the funds to purchase. The library has produced a list of books for addition to the collection that meet the library’s objectives.

Please review the list of titles and if so inclined, provide a donation to cover the purchase of a specific title by writing a check payable to Grace UMC that includes
Library Resource Fund” on the memo line. Please attach the title of your choice to the check.

The wish list may be found at the following Internet address and a printed list may also be found at the entry door to the library to pick up and read later.

Donation Policy 

The Grace Library Committee would like to express appreciation for all of the donations that have come into the Library over the past few years. However, at this time due to a lack of shelving space, the Library will no longer be accepting donations of used materials. The Grace Church Library will accept donations of new books, CD’s, DVDs, etc. provided the item(s) meet the standards of all Selection Policy statements. Where there is duplication of donated materials, they will be made available to church members or they will be donated elsewhere.

Materials donated to the Grace Church Library shall become the property of the library. If necessary, for any reason, the Grace Church Library staff may remove any donated book from the library.

The library will not place a value on gifts for tax purposes.

Upon request, the Library will add a bookplate to newly donated materials.

Loan Period = Two Weeks
