Church Library Hours
During the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to have open library hours. However, there are still ways to check out materials! You may reserve materials by logging on to your patron record in the upper right corner of this screen. We have made it easy for you — your username and password are your patron number. If you don’t recall your number, we can help you. You can also check out materials by calling the library and leaving a message (770.227.5517, ext 130) or by emailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org). On Tuesday afternoons the library team checks phone, email, and reserve messages to fulfill check out requests. We will arrange with you a time and place to pick up your items or to deliver your items to you.
When not under Covid restrictions, our hours are as follows.
Sundays: 9:15-10:55 a.m., 12:00-12:30 p.m.
Tuesdays: 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Books, periodicals, audio books, video cassettes, audio cassettes, DVDs, and CDs are available for checkout.
Anyone who is a member of the First Baptist family or Spalding County community may check out material from the Church Library.
An extensive collection of historical materials may be used in the Church Library but may not be checked out.
