Cardinal Stafford Library

The Library will close on May 16, and remain closed for the summer.

Welcome to the Cardinal Stafford Library!

The Library was formally organized in 1932, and we moved into the space that we’re currently occupying in 1956. Thanks to a number of large donations over time, coupled with the financial commitment to academic excellence on the part of the Seminary, the Library has grown to over 150,000 volumes.
While you’re in the Library, be sure to spend some time in the Archbishop Vehr Reading Room, looking at one of our over 150 subscription journals in the C. Blake Hiester Periodical Room, relax in the G.K. Chesterton Reading Room, or browsing the book sale in the Friends of the Library Reading Room. Be sure to come with questions for the staff, we can help you locate the materials you need.
