Library Photos and Videos

The library’s contemporary relevance as a vibrant theological resource hinges on its adapting to the ways that modern-day patrons make use of library collections and interact within the library’s walls. Transforming our library for such service involved the first-ever, comprehensive updating of the library facility—its interior design, furnishings, systems, and spaces. The project was completed in 2018 and addresses the full range of renovation needs to: establish creative, new spaces that will inspire people to engage with theological ideas and each other in community and collaboration; incorporate innovation that supports theological reflection, inquiry, and research; and preserve our collection purposefully
