The Bill Bost Memorial Library

Welcome to Bill Bost Memorial Library!

The library is:

  • Located next to the church offices in the main corridor.
  • Open whenever the church is open.
  • Operates on the honor system; fill out a card, check out a book and return it when finished
  • Available to all ages, but we ask that young children be supervised when using the library

Who is Bill Bost?

Mr. Bost was a charter member of First Baptist Church of Pinehurst. He served on the first Board of Deacons, was the first Sunday School Director and taught Sunday School. He was on the first By-Laws Committee that established the church organizational structure. After his death on April 16, 2006, his family chose to honor his memory and his love of books by establishing the Bill Bost Memorial Library.

The mission of the Bill Bost Memorial Library is to provide books and material to our congregation with the following purposes:

  • To advance learning about God and His Word,
  • To stimulate interest in the missions of spreading the Gospel and caring for others,
  • To encourage living and growing as Christians,
  • To provide good reading material for all ages.
