The Bunting Library

photo of the Bunting LibraryCome experience the Bunting Library at Newark United Methodist Church!  Our bright and inviting room provides print reading materials for all ages, including picture books, pleasure reading recommendations, DVD’s, and nonfiction supporting our patrons with comfort and guidance through life’s challenges.  All items may be checked out for three weeks.  So come, choose what you want to borrow, sign the card in the pocket, and leave the card in the basket on the desk.

Our church library catalog is now available online! You can search our wonderful collection of spiritual, healing, theology, and pleasure books. You’ll find books for adults and children, as well as a collection of family dvd’s.

Have a few minutes to relax?  There is a puzzle table set up, and a jigsaw puzzle partially finished.  Please add a few pieces.  There is collection of puzzles for you to take home, swap with one you have, or just keep it.  No check out, no fee!

Our “Recent Reads” group meets the second Monday of each month, 1:15 p.m.  Share a book you’ve read, get book ideas from others, and have a bite to eat.

Established in 1965, the Bunting Library is named for Rev. Dr. John Bunting, Jr., a former pastor. We aim to continue our mission of nurturing the congregation and visitors of NUMC. Hope you stop by for a visit!
