The College Library currently contains over 20,000 volumes. The collection consists of books, journals, academic theses from overseas institutions (e.g. the Pacific Theological College; Otago University, Knox College; Melbourne College of Divinity, University of Edinburgh and other institutions), manuscripts and printed materials relating to the history of the CCCS. The Library also has a collection of theses and research papers prepared and submitted by Malua Theological College Lecturers and students as part of their academic requirements.
The Library is readily accessible to students, as well as to Ministers and the CCCS community at large, and the public. Borrowing is available not only to College students and staff, but also to Ministers and any people interested, at the College’s Librarian discretion.
The Chief Librarian and Staff are available for help and consultation during opening hours. Two library assistants are on duty at the information desk to assist readers whenever the Library is open, during working and after-hours, where necessary.
