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.

The library remains open this summer for those of you who may want to borrow books. Please visit the library after church on Sundays, or contact the library committee to make an appointment to come during the week. The library committee has been busy updating our database, cataloging donations, and beginning to replace missing books. For the time being, regrettably, we will not be accepting any new or used book donations.

We continue to hope that the missing books will be returned. To date, only one of the books has been returned. PLEASE return any overdue books and check your bookshelves at home to see whether you have any of our 83 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.
