Library News can be found here ... [click here]

The Cedarhurst Unitarian Universalist library is located in the small room to the left as you enter the foyer.  Members and friends are invited to check the books out and take them home for one month at a time.  There is a clipboard on the wall to the left as you walk in.  Simply sign out the book with your name, title, and the due date-one month from now.  When you return the book, please put it in the "Return Basket" to be shelved by a library volunteer.

If you have books at home you'd like to donate, put them in the donations basket on the window shelf.  We will catalog the book and add it to the shelves, or make it available to others on the "Give-away" bookshelves in the foyer-depending on the needs of the library.

Our goal is to see as many titles in circulation as possible.

Please contact Melinda Byrd about questions or request for the library.
