THE LIBRARY IS OPEN!
The Library will be checking out books/media to interested patrons but will start doing so in phases.
 
The first phase will be as follows:
  1. Books/media can only be selected by perusing our inventory via our website.
  2. Books/media can then be reserved one of two ways—there is a bookbag and reserve tab on the website or you can email us at library@southgate.org with your name, the name of the book, the author's name, and the call number as it appears on the website.
  3. On Monday mornings we will check the system and our email and check out any books you have reserved.
  4. Those books will be left at the receptionist's desk by the offices on Monday afternoon for you to pick up at your convenience.
  5. Books can be returned at the Library drop box during the week or at a box by the sofa in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday mornings.

We will also be featuring in the weekly newsletter a book every week or so that is new or one that has been popular in the past. Please email us with any questions!
