St Philips Lutheran Church Library
St. Philip’s Lutheran Church is a community church centered on Christ that invites everyone to come and see Jesus. It was formally organized in Fridley in 1958. The current building, with its unique baldachin over the chancel area, was constructed shortly after the tornadoes of 1965; the fellowship hall and kitchen were added in 1991 when extensive remodeling was done. Nearby Moore Lake provides a lovely setting for an outside worship area and a recently installed columbarium.
The library has been in existence since the church’s earliest beginnings. In the early 2000’s, it was closed temporarily while records were computerized and cataloguing was changed to the Dewey Decimal System. Thanks to the efforts of the entire library team, this project was completed in one month!
Annual Holiday Book Fairs raise money for the library. Its books are both purchased and donated. There is always a display of new books as well as displays for special occasions and holidays. The current display features books on Martin Luther and the Reformation.
The library is open whenever the church is open. A member of the library group is present on Sunday mornings in September through May. Checkout is self-service.
