Learning Center

Learning Center

The Learning Center, the newest facility on the Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary campus was completed during the Christmas holidays of 2015.  The new space, which is designed to meet the ongoing educative needs of an increasingly tech savvy seminary population, was funded by a successful capital campaign—The Pathways to the Future­—initiated in 2012.

The Learning Center houses over 60,000 volumes of books and provides access to physical and digital journals with an emphasis on theological research.

Surrounded by a scenic wooded backdrop, the Learning Center offers ample quiet space for group and individual study.

Professional library staff members are available daily Monday through Friday to assist with all research needs.
