Library Sep2016The Ramsey House Library is Wellington’s leading biblical studies and theology collections, with nearly 5000 volumes. It contains a strong collection of material relating to the Bible, particularly to the Gospels and Paul, along with numerous volumes in systematic and applied theology, along with some ethics, philosophy, and Christian thought across the university disciplines.   

The library is open to anyone to use for reference purposes. Membership is for one year with an annual fee of $25 or $10 for students which goes directly into the upkeep of the library collection. The loan period is four weeks with one renewal.

The Ramsey House Library is staffed by volunteers. A librarian is normally available for enquiries or issues/returns on:

Monday: 9.30am-1pm

Tuesday: Library Closed 

Wednesday: 1 - 3pm

Thursday: 11am-3pm

Other times are available by arrangement. Books may be returned through the door slot whenever Ramsey House is open.
