St. Martha Library
The St. Martha Library (Room 11, Big Church) is open before & after masses for anyone wishing to browse. In addition to an assortment of books and videos for rental, a mini-gift shop offers
items for sale. Proceeds from the shop are used for a variety of church needs. The room may also be used for meetings.
The Library, as a fundraiser, we are using a new recycling outfit. We will collect used ink jet and toner cartridges, cell phones, MP3 Players, GPS devices and digital cameras. Please bring any of these items to the Library for recycling and eventually cash for St. Martha.
