McCabe Memorial Library
The Sue Martin McCabe Memorial Library is a valuable educational resource for the church and the community, offering a wide variety of selections for every reader – from the casual “fiction lover” to the serious student of the Bible. Our library contains everything from best sellers and popular magazines to “Seminary-level” commentaries, dictionaries, and journals. A separate children’s library offers up-to-date selections for children of all ages and includes a comprehensive video collection.
The library committee still meets at least once a month to design display cases, pull materials for Sunday school teachers, as well as process books and media. The regular meeting is
The Kesler Children’s Library & Francis Hewitt Tech Cove
Visit Our Library
In the early Spring of 2011, the Sue Martin McCabe Library had the grand opening of the Francis Hewitt Tech Cove, situated in the Kesler Young People’s Room. As the recipients of a memorial gift from the Hewitt family “to bring the children’s library into the 21st Century,” the library committee set about rearranging and updating all aspects of the Kesler Room. By moving the junior fiction into the McCabe library and creating four new storage closets, enough room was generated to set up four computers with access for preschoolers educational games, a DVD player for groups stories, an iPad and Nook® Color are also available.
More Fun at the Tech Cove
Computer lessons are held in the Hewitt Tech Cove once a week for six weeks each Fall and Spring. The four-year-olds from the Early Learning Center come to the Kesler Young People’s room and the McCabe Library for classes on the four computers, lessons on tablets, and story time. Each child learns about parts of computers, how to behave in a library, control of the computer mouse, and beginning use of the keyboard. Using either an iPad or a NOOK Color, each child learns how to swipe a tablet, how to follow the course of an educational game, and how to score points. Our library volunteers and teachers read to the children, who then choose a book to check out for their room.
