It is dedicated to the Christian Formation of all God’s children, whatever their age, by providing materials for spiritual growth. There are many resources and services such as books, books on CD, sermons (print/CD), extensive Bible study resources, story times, book clubs, displays and exhibits. Come in and visit Currie Library.
