Spiritual Reading Library

Feed your spirit in the pages of a book.

At First Church Somerville, lots of us love to read--it's how we have come to know God and ourselves better, and books are some of our best friends. For this reason, we have a Spiritual Reading Library where you may meet some new best friends yourself.

The library at First Church Somerville consists of more than 350 books, accumulated through donations over a number of years. Guidelines for borrowing are very relaxed. We ask only that borrowers leave their contact information and return the books after a reasonable amount of time. 

The library includes a wide range of topics, but the books are currently sorted and shelved in 14 categories:  

Arts
Bible
Biography
Comparative Religion
Family
Fiction
Gender
History
Justice
Meditations
Ministry
Recovery
Spiritual Life
Theology 

Most of our books fall into more than one of these categories! You can search for titles in our online LibraryThing catalog.  Additional topics appear as tags. To search by tag, simply click on the topic of interest. Or just come browse, old-school-style, in the Parlor anytime the church is open.

If you have any questions about the spiritual library books, or if you'd like to donate books, please contact our librarian, Hannah Ferello, at library@firstchurchsomerville.org.
