Library

Resources to serve your spiritual, educational, and recreational interests

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” – C. S. Lewis

We have over 7000 titles in our library, and you are welcome to come check

out books, audiobooks, and DVDs for all ages anytime our campuses are

open!  We have both nonfiction and fiction, and we encourage you to

browse our library, either in person or online and find something that fits your interests and needs.

Checkouts, Returns & Reserves

All members and friends of Chapelstreet Church are welcome to check out materials

A library card is required to check out resources. Card applications are available on both campuses.

Materials checked out from the library can be returned to either campus.

You can reserve items through the online catalog or at either campus library.

Online Catalog

Accessible and informative

Click on online catalog to search our collection 24/7.   If you have a library card, you can see a list of the items you have checked out and also your circulation history.   Items may be reserved and renewed.  You can also keep track of items that you are interested in by adding them to a “book bin” that can be printed out or emailed.

Your last name and then first name, typed in lower case as all one word, is your username.  Your password is the last four digits of your library card.  If you don’t know your library card number or have further questions about the online catalog, please email library@chapelstreetchurch.com.

The library accepts new and used donations in good condition without markings. Materials should be published within the last 10 years, unless they are classics. Any materials that we are not able to use will be passed on to other libraries or Christian organizations.
