The SMG Parish Library, established to assist in the parish’s mission to help all parishioners grow in faith and love, strives to make available materials to fulfill this mission. Located adjacent to the Church Gathering Space, the library is open for your browsing pleasure.
We currently have journals, books, CDs, DVDs, audiotapes, and videos covering a wide range of topics, such as Saints and Religious Figures, Prayer and Spirituality, Children and Young Adults, and more!
For those interested, the library is accepting donations - please review the library donation policy. Thank you!
New Online Catalog
Exciting news from the SMG Parish Library - We now have a searchable online catalog! Not only that, but this catalog can be searched from any internet-enabled device, including a smartphone.
It is very easy to use. Simply, go to www.librarycat.org/lib/StMariaGoretti. To search, either enter a keyword in the search box or click on one of the subjects listed. If you are feeling adventurous, or looking to fine-tune your search, click on the arrow to the right of the search box and try an advanced search.
You will notice that every item that matches your search has one or more subject tags listed for it. Books are shelved in the library under the first tag listed.
How to Check Out Books
A patron should visit the library in person and check out items by writing the book information in the binder provided. Since our library is small and in a publicly accessible area, electronic check-out isn’t feasible at this time. When you are finished with the item, simply place it in the returns basket and mark the date in the binder.
So, have some fun and go “check out” what our library has to offer!
