About Our Library

Our church library has two mini “branches”— the children’s collection in the Fenn House chapel and the adult collection in the sanctuary meeting room—plus a library area on the ground floor. These collections feature materials on a wide range of UU-themed topics, including books published by UUA’s own Skinner House and Beacon Press, and books by UU authors. Library resources are available for all CVUUSers to use.
