Mount Calvary Baptist Church - Claybon Lea Memorial Library
One Church two locations, A Multi-Ethnic Ministry

The library of Mount Calvary Baptist Church made its debut in 1991. Just like knowledge, Mount Calvary’s library began as a vision of our founding Pastor, Claybon Lea, Sr. He believed that people should know their history. He believed that knowledge is power. A favorite scripture he often quoted was "my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge", Hosea 4:6 (KJV).  He envisioned a place where people of African descent can frequent and learn about the rich historical legacy and contributions made by our ancestors

After his homegoing, the library was relocated to the church's new interim site on Enterprise Drive and named Claybon Lea Memorial Library. A re-dedication service took place in November 2007.

The Library is open to all Mount Calvary members as well as the community. The library hours are 6:00 P.M.  to 8:00 P.M. on Tuesday and Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon.

The Library staff is ready to serve and assist you in locating books from the 2,500 titles on file, begging to enlighten and broaden your mind’s perspective. Many books have been donated and are being added to our library using state of the art computer software. All library books and materials can be check out for 21 days.
