About the Library

The Ecumenical Library serves the informational and research needs of the Center's diverse tenancy. The
Library holds 17,000 books and receives various periodicals and newspapers. While the collection is
primarily religious in nature the Library has a fiction section that supports its book club and also includes
material on non-profit management and fund raising, health and nutrition, and women’s issues. The
Library has archival collections on mission history and ecumenism. The Library can obtain material not in
its collection through interlibrary loan, provided ample time is given. The Library's primary clientele are
the staff members of the tenant agencies of the Interchurch Center. Students and faculty of Columbia
University, Union Theological Seminary, and Jewish Theological Seminary can visit The Library but do not
have borrowing privileges. The Library is open by appointment to researchers unaffiliated with tenant
organizations. To make an appointment to visit the library, or for more information, email
 or call 212-870-3804.
