Betty Barrick Library

The Library

Lakeview UMC has a library with more than 2,000 items, including books, DVDs, CDs and talking books. Fifteen categories of books range from Christian Living to Fiction and Poetry. The Reference Section is especially helpful to those planning talks or working in Bible studies.

The Betty Barrick Library started in 1970 with two stacks outside the receptionist’s office. As it grew, it took over more space. Then in 1996 the present library was dedicated. At the time Betty Barrick was librarian. When she retired in 2012 the library was named in her honor.

The Mission

“Lakeview’s library is a ministry of the church, and the Library Committee seeks to provide books and other media to support the teaching, preaching, counseling and evangelistic ministries of the congregation. The collection is intended to aid members and friends in their spiritual development, in living their faith in the community and world today, in serving effectively in the life of the congregation, and in wholesome use of leisure time for enrichment of their lives.”
