Circulation Desk

We ask you to check out all materials before you take them from the Library. Circulation is self-serve. Books can be borrowed for three weeks; CDs and DVDs for one week. Write your full name and the date (include the year) on the card found in the back of the item and leave the card in the box on the circulation desk

Concourse: The Library’s Computer System

Locating books and other materials is easy: just click on "Easy Word Search" and type in a title, subject, or author and click on "search." The list of available items will be displayed. Please note: because we do not track checked out books in the computer, all books will be marked as "in," when in fact they may be currently checked out.

CDs and DVDs Items

Our CDs and DVDs are housed in the Library. In the collection, you will find music and movies appropriate for all ages.

Books

The extensive children’s collection has titles that would supplement topics you might be discussing in classrooms. Books are donated by the Committee for each child born to or adopted by Church families.

Thanks to the over 50 donations by Zondervan in 2008, the youth collection has expanded greatly.

Resources for Church School Teachers

DPC’s Library and its resources are available to all Church School teachers. There is a special teachers' resource area located on the right-hand side of the shelf under the windows. These resources provide ideas for classroom activities, games, puzzles, bulletin boards, and more. They are divided into Arts and Crafts, Bible, Old Testament, New Testament, and Church Year. Check out for these items is the same as other Library items.

Magazine Swap

Located on the left-hand side of the shelf under the windows, magazines are available without check out. You are free to use these magazines in any way that is helpful to you. The Committee tries to keep the magazines weeded to the most current six months. We also invite you to donate your own current magazines.
