|LibraryThing is a web-based
catalog service that allows us to provide a library-quality online catalog. You
can search the catalog by author, subject, ISBN, date, and title.
more: you can search this catalog from any computer that has web
service. Since LibraryThing is a service that hosts many library
catalogs, we now have access to catalogs from other churches,
universities, GLBT centers, bookstores, and personal collections.
You can find these groups and more on our profile page.
Our collection includes
books that aid in spiritual growth for a deeper understanding
of one's self and one's role in the community, that further
understanding of church programs and values, and that support
the needs of the ministry. We make an effort to acquire titles
that may not be readily available in local public libraries
or bookstores, and that are of particular interest to Unitarian
Universalists and UU Church of Victoria members.
The library is run
by a group of volunteers. The team oversees the purchase
and cataloging of library materials, as well as library
operations and service to UU of Victoria Church.
Checking out books from the library is self-service.
The loan period is two weeks and members are limited to
two books at a time; you may renew library materials.
While there are no fines for overdues, we ask that you
return library materials on time. Borrowers with long
overdue materials may receive a friendly reminder by phone or email.
Requests for books are always welcome - you can leave a note in the library
of contact any library volunteer. We try to honor as many book requests as
budget and appropriateness for the collection allows. It can take up to
three weeks for a book to be ready for check out.
Gifts of books and monetary donation are always welcome, and will be judged
for addition to the collection on the same standards for book selection as
those purchased. Gift books not added to the collection will be used to
benefit the library or other programs at the church.
