Visit Our Beacon Bookstore Every Sunday!
Located in Fuller Hall, the bookstore (which started life in a closet in the 1960's) has grown to a vibrant, welcoming respite for all congregants and visitors to First Church. It supports the spiritual mission and principles of our church with offerings to stimulate and broaden our thinking as we move along our spiritual path, and help us better understand Unitarian Universalism.
In addition to religion and spiritual topics you’ll find books on current politics, sustainable living, social justice issues, books of contemporary poetry and literature, and a wide selection of titles for children. Books recommended for adult program classes can be purchased through the bookstore, and most any book can be special ordered. CD’s and paper copies of Sunday sermons are always available. We support congregant authors and artists by carrying their books, note-cards, and CDs.
First Church receives 30% of our book sales.............thank you for your support!
Visit our First Unitarian congregational libraries—
the Channing Room Library and the Blue Sky Library.
We have received so many wonderful donations that we opened a second location! The Blue Sky Library, located in A301, just above the Channing Room, includes children’s books, psychology, biographies, poetry, religion, and literature. The Channing Room emphasis is on Unitarian Universalism, World Religions, Spiritual Practice, and Social Justice. Both libraries have benefited recently from the donations of Ted Hollingsworth’s estate and from Rev. Marilyn Sewell. Check-out is an informal card system, based on trust.
If you have questions or a donation please contact Diane Gutman at 503-328-8237 or
