Library Mission and Administration

Library Mission Statement

Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society Library provides a wide variety of UU-relevant books, media, and related services to support, enrich, and extend:

  • The ministries, programs, purposes, and activities of the congregation
  • Understanding of Unitarian Universalist beliefs, history, worship, and practice
  • The spiritual growth of individual members and friends at all ages and stages of religious learning and exploration
  • CVUUS Library is managed by volunteers, members and friends, who are interested in books, reading, faith development, and sharing information about Unitarian Universalism. Library enthusiasts welcome! We have a particular need for volunteers who could (1) assist in managing our online library system, (2) help with book preparation, circulation, and re-shelving, (3) promote library use in various ways, (4) staff a small book sale cart, or (5) help organize CVUUS archival material. Orientation and support available.
