LIBRARY

The Fullerton Free Library has over 11,500 books and media, largely from an evangelical Christian perspective, though some items from a different persuasion may be included to aid a believer in research. Our mission is to provide resources that will undergird our church’s ministry; however, the Library is open to the community. Our collection includes the following for adults, youth, and children: fiction and nonfiction, magazines, audio material, and movie DVDs. We focus on titles that are not ordinarily available at your public library. We are located in the Commons building, adjacent to The Well.

You are encouraged to take full advantage of this church-supported resource as you enjoy fruitful hours of reading and listening. Using the online catalog, you can explore the library’s holdings from the comfort of your home or office and then come in to borrow the items you want. Contact the library to create an account.

Donations

The Library accepts donations of gently used books, CDs and DVDs that have a Christian point-of-view. You may bring your donations to the Library between 8am–6pm. To help us, please bring small amounts (one or two bags or boxes) at a time and clearly label them "donation". Items may be added to our collection or made available on our used-books sale shelves to support the library.

Upcoming Events

USED BOOKSALES: Used books are always available on the “Pre-owned Books for Sale” shelves for a donation of any amount. Periodically the Library will hold a Used Books Sale in which all items are also available for a voluntary donation of any price. The proceeds of these “sales” enable our staff to increase the number of new items the Library offers.
