The second location is in the Narthex after Mass on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings for your convenience. Just look for the red book carts.

Please Consider Donating
The SJN library needs new and gently used books, DVD’s, and CD’s to help grow our collection. We are always looking for good quality, moral, and gently used books, DVD’s, and CD’s including fiction, children’s books, and nonfiction. However the church library reserves the right to add, sell, or dispose of any books, CD’s, or DVD’s donated to the library. These decisions will be based on need, collection, and circulation, thank you.
