Books and Resources

While we strongly purchase and make Christian authors and resources available, not all books and resources in the Carmel Media Center are Christian authors or based specifically. Our policy is "read and redeem". Some books may contain mild language or situations that teachers and parents need to guide their child in understanding. Patrons may voice their thoughts on a particular item through a form in our Collection and Review Policy.
