The Holy Trinity Library
The library seeks to preserve our faith and heritage by providing our church community with access to books on Orthodoxy, Greek history, culture, and literature.
The library, established in 1992 in memory of Elias Canelos, currently has approximately 3000 volumes for adults and children. Books may be signed out and borrowed with care for a period of four weeks. The library is open every Sunday after church and during the week by appointment.
Contributions may be made to the library to purchase and dedicate books in memory of, or in honor of, a loved one.
As summer approaches, please visit our church library to borrow books for some good summer reading. The library will also still be open during the summer after church on Sundays and by special appointment during the week, if you call Denise Graf at 914-921-1475 to schedule a time.
Thanks as always to the many parishioners and friends of our church who have supported the library and made donations! The most recent donations, which are all children’s books, are listed below.
We congratulate this year’s graduates and wish everyone a very happy summer!

PLEASE RETURN ANY OVERDUE CHURCH LIBRARY BOOKS THAT MAY STILL BE ON YOUR BOOK SHELVES!
Many books are missing from the library. These books have been donated in memory or honor of loved ones and often cannot be replaced because they have gone out of print. Please return them to the basket in the church library or to the church office. Thank you very much!
