The Alice Smith Library at Berean Baptist Church!

The library was named in honor of Alice Smith, who introduced countless people to the gift of reading.  She invested in the lives of others through the seeds of Christian literature.  The Berean library that exists today represents the accumulation of 30 years of dedicated time and effort.  The library was named after Alice Smith in January of 2013 as a tribute to her tireless ministry.  She impacted many people with her book selection, her summer program Camp Read-a-Lot, and her genuine love for everyone who entered the library.  Alice went to be with the Lord in November of 2013, but her legacy lives on.

The library is located near the east exit in the main foyer.  We hope you’ll come and have a look at all we have to offer!

Our goal is to provide a variety of materials, written and recorded, for all ages, which will encourage and inspire those who come through our doors.
