As long as our building is closed for the COVID pandemic, the library will not be accessible.
The library contains a permanent collection of books and other materials focused on Humanism, Unitarian Universalism, religion, personal and spiritual growth, social concerns and other issues important to the Society and its members. This collection is located along the north wall of the library and has been developed and is maintained by our members. The books can be checked out for as long as you need them.
The library also sells used books donated by members on all topics. You set the price. Magazines are free. First Unitarian members are great readers and have excellent taste! Come in and look around and find yourself some inexpensive reading for the coming week. If you have books or magazines you think others would enjoy reading, drop them off. The proceeds go to purchase new materials for the permanent collection and other worthy causes.
To search the collection please visit this site.
An Excel listing current as of November 2019 may be downloaded here. (Not all browsers support this kind of download; the library keeps a printed copy of its holdings which you are free to use).
We offer members and visitors a comfortable, welcoming and quiet space to browse, relax and enjoy the materials offered. A member of the Library Committee is always there to assist you.
The library is on Facebook.
