Welcome to the St. Andrew’s Library



With a few easy chairs, as well as a small meeting table and a worktable, St. Andrew’s
library provides a comfortable space in which to peruse holdings at leisure, use
reference books for research, and/or hold small study groups. The library is open for
use on Sunday mornings and may be booked through the church office for use at other
times during the week. A laptop is also available to borrow from the church office if
required to access the library’s catalogue.

The library is located across the hall from the Boardroom on the main floor of the St.
Andrew’s Centre.

Materials available in the library are listed in St. Andrew’s online catalogue
‘StAndrewsTO’ at https://www.librarycat.org/lib/StAndrewsTO

Using the catalogue’s search feature, enter the title, a keyword or the name of the
author into the search field to see a list of corresponding books. The advanced search
function allows the use of additional fields such as subject or publisher. Each listing will
include a call number which identifies the location of the book. Reference books are
tagged as “Collection: Reference”.

Clicking on a book title opens a page with further information, which may include
publication information, the genre(s) and subject(s), a short outline of the book and/or
book reviews. Clicking on the author will result in a list of other library holdings by the
same author.

Books and other materials that may be signed out are shelved on the east and south
walls, and reference books are housed on the bookshelves on the west wall. Please
note, reference books are not available for loan but are only to be used on site.

To sign out a book, remove the card from the pocket on the inside of the back cover,
write your name and telephone number and/or email address on the card and leave it in
the small box on the worktable.

Please do not reshelve any materials. All materials removed from the shelves, whether
for use on site or off site, must be placed in the Book Return tray on the worktable.
