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. 


Christos Anesti! Christ Is Risen!

May the blessings of Easter be with us all! Certainly the library committee considers itself blessed by the generosity of the parishioners and friends of Holy Trinity, to whom we give heartfelt thanks. We are also delighted that many of our parishioners borrowed books from the library for study and contemplation during the Lenten season. Listed below are the most recent donations.
