There isn't even a card catalog.  Just the checkout cards. There is a binder with a list of all books with an ascension number.  

The library started 30 years ago with boxes of books that were shared before there was a room for it, before the church had a permanent location.  We have had one volunteer librarian the whole time, but she has no formal training . Also quite computer illiterate.
