The mission of the Library at Saint John's Cathedral is to develop an inviting environment that is conducive to deeper understanding and knowledge regarding Christianity, theology, spirituality, and how we can best express these in our world. The Cathedral Library is committed to providing quality Christian media to St. John's parishioners as well as to members of our sister parishes in the Diocese of East Tennessee.
The Cathedral Library has many wonderful books and resources available ranging from interpreters bibles, commentaries, spiritual formation, novels, selections on history, gardening, cooking, and music. Children and juvenile materials are also included in the collection.

Join us for a new book club where members are invited to talk about books they are currently enjoying or have enjoyed based on a theme of the month. Discussions will be accompanied by a light breakfast. There is no designated book of the month and no pressure to speak during a meeting. Just a love of books and fellowship required!
