Cathedral Lending Library
Cathedral Lending Library
Third Sunday of Each Month
After 10:00 a.m. Mass
The next opening time of our Cathedral Lending Library is Sunday, December 17, 2017! Come to Hayden Hall after the 10:00 a.m. Mass, enjoy coffee and donuts, and check out books from our 500+ collection! Be sure to take advantage of this amazing free resource for all things Catholic.
We’ve received brand-new and used books, audio lectures, and DVDs from many parishioners, as well as outside donors who support the library’s mission. There are titles in all subjects, including wonderful selections for younger readers. Do stop by!
- Library will open once a month (third Sunday of the month) for checking out items, but you can return them at any time to the drop box in the lower level of the Cathedral. No late fees, no membership, just wonderful free books and media for your use!
- We are in need of volunteers to help staff the library table, helping set up and check out books for borrowers. Interested? Contact Gabby Doran (contact info below)
- We are looking for new or used book carts to better organize our increasing collection. If you care to donate a cart, or money towards one, please let us know!
- Sorry, but we are no longer accepting donations of used books.
