The Church Library provides resources and services designed to enhance the quality of ministry, discipleship, fellowship and worship in the lives of the members of the church. Our goal is to enhance the study of God’s Word; stimulate Christian growth; promote missions; and provide personal encouragement and enjoyment for church members of all ages.

The Library is located just inside the entrance to the Christian Family Life Center at Delaney Baptist Church.

Every Thursday during the Summer  //  10 am

The Delaney Library is offering a Summer Reading Program for all ages. Children will decorate scrapbooks to keep a list of books read. There is a reading program for teens and adults too! Come explore the Library with fun activities this Summer. Drop by the Library any time between 10 am to 2 on Thursday or any time the Library is open.

You can read through the Bible in one year, by reading just 15 minutes a day!

The Bible can instill confidence in God in a way that nothing else can!

Pick up information on how to Read the Bible from cover to cover in one calendar year, by visiting the Church Library, or by picking up a brochure in one of the Information stands at the entrances to the Sanctuary, or you can click on the links below for printable checklists. 

If you prefer a Chronological Bible Reading Chart (reading the Bible as its events occurred in real time), you can pick this up in the Church Library, or in the links below as well. These readings are compiled according to historical research, according to the recordings in which the events actually occurred. This is a fantastic plan to follow if you wish to add historical context to your reading of the Bible.

When you finish reading the chapter/verses listed, place a check mark after each reading section. When the schedule is completely filled out, return the form to the church office or library for credit towards a certificate! These are presented in service at the beginning of the following year.
