Located next to the Life Center (door B), Highland's library houses hundreds of books, dvd's, and Bible studies to help equip the body of believers with resources. We would love for you to visit, be encouraged, and equipped.

Our desire is to:
Advance the study of the Bible, Stimulate Christian growth, Promote missions, Enhance the quality of worship and Support the ministries of the church
The HBC Library welcomes gifts of new and gently used books and media. These gifted items will be added to the collection in accordance with our selection policy. Items which cannot be used will be given to other ministries or sold to provide funds for items on our wish list.
No provisional gifts will be accepted, i.e. the library does not accept any items which are not an outright gift. The library will, upon request, provide a HBC Non-Cash Contribution Receipt. This receipt will be signed by the library director, but all lists/details of donated items must be completed by the donor.
The library is unable to set fair market or appraisal values. The library does welcome monetary donations - in the form of memorials, or in honor of births, anniversaries, retirements, etc. Please give donations to a library staff member or designate your gift to the "Library" in your church envelope.
Any members of Highland Baptist Church over the age of 18 may become a library patron and borrow materials.
Library patron accounts are established by family group. Children are allowed (with parental permission) to borrow materials on their parents' account.
Children wishing to borrow media must be accompanied by their parent.
Non-members and visitors may borrow items on a limited basis.
Books and media items are generally loaned for a two-week period.
Bible study kits are generally loaned for six-eight weeks depending on class needs. These kits are available to HBC members only, as the average cost for a kit is $150-200. Patrons are responsible for the return of ALL items in the kits or are financially responsible for replacement costs.
Patrons may only check out materials on their own account and are cautioned against loaning library materials to others.
Promptness is expected in the return of library items. In trying to provide grace for extenuating circumstances, fines are not normally assessed. Instead, we suggest that donations be made to the "Library Kitty" at the circulation desk.
Items may be rechecked only once without approval from the library director.
Patrons are financially responsible for lost or damaged library items plus shipping and a $4 processing fee per item. With approval from the library director, patrons may purchase the replacement item; however, if "used," the item must be identical and in the same or better condition (and the patron is still responsible for paying the processing fee).
Patrons with items over four weeks overdue will be blocked from borrowing more materials.
Items that are three months overdue will be re-ordered and the replacement cost (plus shipping and processing fees) will be added to the patron account. Patrons will not be allowed to borrow more materials until their account is cleared.
