The Styberg Library

The Styberg Library The Styberg Library is the academic library of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and Bexley Seabury Seminary.

The Styberg Library welcomes and serves all persons, respecting the many diverse identities that they bring with them. The United Library was established in 1981 when the libraries of Seabury-Western Theological Seminary and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary were merged. In April 2009, Garrett-Evangelical purchased the Seabury-Western interest in the collection. On May 11, 2017, the library

was renamed The Ernest and Bernice Styberg Library in honor of the Styberg's generous donations to Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. We invite all patrons and visitors to explore the book stacks, to use the public study spaces, and to delve into our special collections of rare items.
