Books for Children and Youth

Children's section of the First Congregational libraryIn First Congregational's library, children and youth may find Bible stories and literature with positive Christian messages for very young children through middle school. Why not encourage your child to practice reading with materials that also nurture their growing faith? First Congo also offers a collection of children’s videos that are Biblically based, present stories that are fun, and encourage healthy thinking and good choices.

Books for children and youth are housed in a separate section. Because we encourage all children to use these books, we make no effort to keep them in order.
