The Rare Books Room is located on the second floor of the Library. Inside, rare books are kept under controlled temperature and humidity. Books published before 1830, publications in Braille, and very rare volumes are housed here.
The Room was opened in 1986 and funded largely by a gift from the women of the North Hills Reformed Presbyterian Church.
The Room is kept locked, but you may ask for the key in the Library Office or the Seminary Office. The book cabinets within the Room are never locked.
The Room is to be used only for using the rare books, unless the Librarian grants special permission for other purposes. Meetings in this room must be scheduled through the Seminary Office.
