The Church Library Resources Center at Monument Heights Baptist was established August 13, 1961. It provides many services and benefits for every age group preschool through adults as well as for church programs and leaders. Our collections consist primarily of Christian material, but also include many selections of good fiction, non-fiction and biography books, DVD’s, CD’s, audio books, commentaries, dictionaries, atlases, concordances, study kits and magazines that will edify, educate and entertain. It is our goal to provide the latest releases while maintaining older classics. Everything is available to be checked out as long as as a membership card has been completed.

The most common and preferred gift is monetary which is used for the purchase of new materials and furnishings. The donor and Library Director may determine specific needs regarding the choice of gift. Honorary and memorial gifts are valuable to our library ministry.
Materials are accurate in facts, spiritual interpretation and doctrine; objective in content when related to denominational groups and other religions; constructive in influence, morally sound and reflect Christian standards of high literary or technical quality, including sound educational methods to aid in learning.
Donations of gently used or new materials are accepted and must meet the same standards of the selection policy. Items may be added to our collection, given to persons needing resources or other church libraries. Unless specified, the donations will not be returned to the donor. The library staff reserves the right to accept or reject all materials. We ask that they be within 10 years of publication date, not yellowed, torn, written in or damaged.
