The Kendall Memorial Library at Wellshire Presbyterian Church reflects the importance of education within the Presbyterian tradition.
Hosting a large and growing collection of fiction and non-fiction books for adults and for children and featuring secular and Presbyterian-related materials, the library allows books to be checked out for three weeks or simply enjoyed in the nearby seating. Whether patrons use the computer database within the library or peruse the shelves to find a new read, there is something for every age level and interest at the Kendall Memorial Library.
The library is located just within the east entrance at Wellshire and is typically available for use during regular church hours (8:30 am to 4:30 pm weekdays and 8:30 am to 12:30 pm on Sundays).
In 1965, the Wellshire congregation established the Kendall Memorial Library in memory of the Kendall family, members of the church who tragically lost their lives in a car accident the previous year. Mary Lou, the wife and mother honored by the library, served Wellshire as a Sunday School teacher and now passes on a legacy of education through the library bearing her name.
