We are pleased to provide you with this general ad for the parish bulletin, letting your parishioners know that they are welcome to use the services of the library here in Huntington.
We have an interlibrary loan service, lectures in the library, and even some online content (such as podcasts) that they could take advantage of. If they are within driving distance, they are also welcome to apply for a courtesy card and borrow materials directly when they visit.
Our collection began years ago as strictly an academic library, but since the priestly formation program changed a few years ago (and our seminarians moved up to Yonkers), we have varied the collection a bit so that it can appeal to the general reader wanting to deepen their faith. Our book collection includes lots of books on spirituality, saints, popular apologetics, and so forth. We also have current Catholic periodicals, sacred music on CD, and even DVDs.
Because we aim to serve the people of the diocese, we do hope you will find space in your parish bulletin for one of these ads. Thank you for your consideration.
