The library was established when Biblical Theological Seminary (now Evangelical School of Theology Educational Center) came into existence in 1990. It is a place of study, research and ministry for both faculty members and students. Also, non-students are welcome to use books and periodicals in the reading room. The library consists of 20,900 volumes, which is the largest evangelical collection in Poland. Within the library is the Dietrich Bonhoeffer collection, also the largest in Poland. In recent years there has been increasing interest in the Jonathan Edwards’ collection, which was established as part of the EST library in 2009 in association with Yale University.
The library is the heart of any school. It represents the accumulated learning, wisdom, and experience of generations of believers from ages past up to our own times. We cannot have a chat with Luther, Augustine, Aquinas, or Maimonides but we can read what they wrote and learn from them. Please visit the Library webpages for more information and also learn how you can contribute to the library.
