Many Bruton parishioners are unaware that there is a treasure trove on the basement level of the Parish House — The Hennage Library, a small (1,400) but carefully chosen collection of faith-based materials available to educate, enlighten and entertain members of our congregation.
The Library Committee is continually seeking new and appropriate materials to add to the collection, and we offer the opportunity to Adopt-A-Book. Our Acquisitions Committee maintains a list of books and other materials it would like to add to the collection. If you would like to participate in this project, you can do so by clicking here to read a list of “candidate books” that are available for adoption. The Library Committee has established a single set price of $25 for adopting a book so that you only need to select the book or books you would like to adopt. The committee will do the rest, including adding a nameplate in the book indicating that you are adoptive “parent(s)”.
Some Bruton committees recognize the contribution of retiring committee chairs by adopting a book and, with an appropriate nameplate, have it placed in the Library.
