The Holy Trinity library seeks to preserve our Orthodox faith and Greek heritage by providing our church community with access to books on Orthodoxy, Greek history, culture, and literature.

As summer approaches, please visit our church library to borrow books for some good summer reading. Remember also that we have a wonderful collection of children’s books to help introduce our youngsters to our faith. The library will still be open during the summer after church on Sundays and by special appointment during the week. Please call Denise Graf at 914-921-1475 to schedule a time. 

PLEASE return any overdue books and check your bookshelves at home to see whether you have any of our 84 missing books. Most books have a bookplate noting the donor and the person(s) in whose memory or honor the book has been donated. Sometimes books go out of print, and besides being costly, they become difficult or impossible to replace. All of our books have a Holy Trinity Church Library label or stamp on the inside back cover, and many books also have a white spine label with a number and the first letter of the author’s last name. Listed below are the books that are missing.  

The library committee congratulates all the graduates in our community and wishes everyone a very happy summer!
