The Library Committee, with generous funding from the Women’s Fellowship, has added some new books to our collection. Many of these books came highly recommended by Dr. Tori Smit during her Faith Formation Workshop at Grace.

Please stop by the library and browse these resources, as well as our Lent and Easter children’s books!
