Library’s Church History Project

Greensboro Public Library is seeking additional copies of the written histories of churches and other faith communities.

The library sent letters to these organizations last spring, asking for written histories in any length from one-paragraph summaries to full-length books.

As of November 2009, the library has received twenty-one books and forty-two shorter histories, suitable for our file cabinets, in response to these letters. In all, the library now has books about seventy-five Guilford County churches and faith communities and file folders with information on 220 of these organizations.

If you belong to a faith community whose written history is not in the library, contact Helen Snow, North Carolina Librarian.

If your faith community has never written its history, this is a good time to get started!

The church histories are on the second floor of the Central Library, 219 N. Church Street. Ask at the reference desk on that floor for assistance in finding the ones that you want.
