Orthodoxy in the Public Library

There’s one thing avid readers and occasional readers can agree on: books are getting expensive! That’s why we were thrilled when the public library came to Mother Macaria (our bookstore manager) and asked for a list of recommended books they could purchase for the library. Since then, she has sold quite a few books to the library and they are now available for the public to check out.

That means you can support Christian Orthodoxy, the Indianapolis Public Library, and St. Seraphim’s bookstore by checking out some great books. If your local library doesn’t have them on the shelf, place it on hold (you can also do this on line) and indicate which library you want to pick it up from.
