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!
Check out our searchable online catalog! 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 an Item
After choosing your items, please locate the check-out card in the pocket holder of each item. Since our library is small and in a publicly accessible area, electronic check-out isn’t feasible at this time.
Check Out and Return an Item
- Complete the check-out card with the requested information.
- Drop the completed check-out card into the "Check Out Box" located on the back shelf of the Parish Library.
- When you are finished with the item, simply place it in the basket labeled "Returns and Donations."
So, have some fun and go “check out” what our library has to offer!
