  202 Charles C. Myers Library (563) 589-3215 mknefel@dbq.edu

 "The library plays a vital role in the Seminary students' lives by   connecting them to the resources they require for their education. We are blessed to have the Charles C. Myers Library, expanded and renovated in 2003. The award-winning building invites students to study, research, collaborate, finish their paper, or just relax in Sylvia's Common Ground, the coffee shop. With many resources available electronically-reserve reading, periodical articles, and databases-information is available when and where students' need it. The library shares a catalog with Wartburg Theological Seminary's Reu Memorial Library and runs a daily shuttle of materials. These combined libraries offer students access to a collection of over 275,000 volumes."
