The Sharon Jones Library at Atonement Lutheran Church began in 1966 through a memorial for Sharon Lynn Jones. She died of Ewing's Sarcoma at the age of 9. Sharon was one of the youngest charter members of Atonement and was the daughter of Earle and Roberta Jones.
Since then the library has grown to over 2200 resources including books, CD’s, videos, and DVD’s. There is a children section with easy books as well as a teen section. Adult books are all religious in nature. There are Christian Fiction, Bibles, books on prayer, aging, care-giving, death and grief, devotions and the family.
