How It Works
Watch the short videos below for an overview and click the drop-down questions on your right to read more about how the Media Center works.
Who Can Borrow Resources?
Anyone involved with a United Methodist church in the North Carolina Conference. There is no membership fee.
What Resources Can We Borrow?
We have DVD studies, curriculum, books, leader training, and ministry resources for disciples of all ages and stages.
Usually, we loan the items that the leader would need to use to teach the content, such as the DVD, leader guide, and one copy of the student book. We do have multiple participant books available for these studies.
How Do We Request Resources?
Fill out the Resource Request Form,
Email the librarian, Laura Dallas, at email@example.com,
Call the Media Center at 984-257-0981,
Visit the Media Center at the United Methodist Building, 700 Waterfield Ridge Place, Garner, NC 27529. Open Monday-Thursday, 9:00am-5:00pm for self-checkout. Make an appointment for Fridays or for librarian assistance.
How Do We Get These Resources?
We pay to mail items to you. You pay to mail them back. All resources are mailed through the US Postal Service using the Library Mail rate. Most packages arrive within 1-3 days of being mailed.
You may pick up and return resources to the Media Center at the United Methodist Building in Garner 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Thursday.
How Long Can We Keep These Resources?
Resources are checked-out to you for 30 days OR for the length of the study. You may request an extended due date or renew your items as long as no one else has requested them.
There are no late fees or penalties for keeping resources past their due dates. However, providing the Media Center with an accurate date of when you will be finished with a resource allows us to better serve others who may be interested in borrowing that resource.
