How to Use the Card Catalog

The Card Catalog is available to aid library users in searching for any materials in the parish library collections, i. e. books, CDs, audio and video tapes, bibliographies and references.  The card catalog can be found in a cabinet with drawers located next to the door leading the library workroom.

The drawers are organized and labeled accordingly:

  • CHILDREN/TEEN (for the Teen’s and Children’s collections). Cards are arranged alphabetically according to Title, Author or Subject cards.
  • ADULT  (for the adult’s collection). Cards are arranged alphabetically according to Title, Author or Subject cards.

Note: Parish library users are not allowed to pull out any card(s) from the Card Catalog drawers. Should you need information from a card, paper and pencils are available for your use.

Parish library users are expected to observe the follow rules:

  • Please remain quiet.
  • If an item needs re-shelving, place it at the end of a shelf. A library aide is in-charge of putting all the materials back on the shelves.
  • Eat or drink elsewhere.
  • Please take extra care with all materials so they last a long time and can be enjoyed by other library patrons.
  • Our young visitors need adult supervision for the benefit of all.
