Why Do We Have a Library?
We believe the library enables each of us to better fulfill our church's vision "to build Christians who worship God, walk in love, and witness to the world." This happens within the library ministry by providing audio/video materials and books of all types−commentaries, reference works, Christian history and biographies, theological studies, missions, ethics, current issues, Christian living, and more. Through all these resources our hope is that we can, by the renewing of our minds: Be taught to worship God more fully, Be transformed to walk in love with one another in the church, and Be trained to witness about Christ to the world around us.
•The NCC library contains thousands of biblically based books ranging from centuries to newly released, across a wide range of subjects.
•Any church member/attender or visitor can check out a book at the library, along with searching our online catalog at Follett Destiny (see below "Follett Destiny" for more details.)
•Many of the books available in the NorthCreek bookstore are also available to check out in the library.
Checking Out Books/Book Loan Policy
Books can be checked out and renewed at the library in the Welcome Center at anytime the library is open. During your first visit, you will be inputted into the system as a "patron" and then checking out books is very simple.
Book Loan Policy
Books in the Circulation Library (Welcome Center) may be checked out for two weeks.
Books in the Reference Library (Worship Center 223) may be checked out for two weeks. A Library volunteer can assist you in retrieving a book from the reference library (may need to wait until the following week to pick up.)
Books may be renewed for an additional two weeks if another patron has not placed a hold on the book.
All NCC members and regular attenders may have no more than three books checked out at any given time.
All other patrons may have no more than two books checked out at any given time.
If a book is not returned by the due date, a late fee of $0.25 per book per day will be charged.
If a book is lost or damaged, the patron will be responsible to pay for replacement costs.
This easy to use web-based library cataloging program allows users to search all library holdings from any computer. The library online catalog is fast, comprehensive, and easy to learn. Go to Follett Destiny.
Under the "Catalog" tab, go to "Library Search" to find books. Refine your search either using "Basic," "Visual," or "Copy Categories" (tabs on the top right of the search page.) Use "Basic" for searching by title or author; Use "Visual" or "Copy Categories" for searching by category. Once you find the book you want, visit the church library in the Welcome Center to check it out.
