Book Displays

Stop by our new display, Anti-racist Reading! These titles are meant to challenge and encourage us all as we confront racism and work towards shalom in our own lives. For more on this, read Gordon’s Shalom Statement.

Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15 each year. September 15 is the anniversary of independence for several Latin American countries and this time is set aside to celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Central and South America, Spain, Mexico, and the Caribbean.


Living the Christian life is an important part our shared experience.  When we live in community with one and other we are called to support and encourage those around us as we journey on our walks with God.  The Christian Life book display showcases new books added to our collection that offer wisdom into what it means to live the Christian life.  

The Christian Life book display is housed in the lobby of Jenks on the card catalog as you turn up the stairs to the 4th floor.
