Library

The Brightman-Craig Library at Covenant is open to all who desire to expand their knowledge. From fiction to Biblical references to sports, our library is filled with a variety of genres for you to explore. With over 5,000 books ranging from children’s books to non-fiction, we hope there is something for you to enjoy. The library is a warm, welcoming place that, hopefully, will suit the needs of its members and the community.

The Brightman-Craig Library is the result of the union between First Presbyterian Church and Trinity Presbyterian Church. At that time, the library was named for Mary Brightman of First Church and Mabel Craig of Trinity as these two women were instrumental in the upkeep and volunteer work in their respective church libraries.

The library is open for people to meet, discuss books, volunteer, spend quiet time, read, or just check out/return books. The library also gives members the opportunity for giving memorials or just sharing books. Books can be checked out in the library by signing the card and date found in the front of the book and placing that card in the check-out box on top of the card catalog file drawers. Other books can be checked out from the display table across from the office and also from the children’s book cart in the foyer. Books can be returned to the display table if the card is found in the basket; otherwise, books need to be returned to the library.

As books are checked out on the honor system, it is asked that books be returned within a month. The library is always open. Magazines on the table outside the library are for the taking as members often donate these magazines for others’ reading. The mission of the Brightman-Craig Library is to educate, to facilitate a better understanding of the Bible, and to entertain with the wonderful world of reading.

The library is maintained regularly by volunteers Lee Main, Ann Williams, and Jean Chambers.
