The G.H. Cachiaras Memorial Library represents a vital part of the college’s academic resources. It houses over 30,000 books, pamphlets, and audio-visual materials in a variety of formats, with especially strong holdings in biblical and theological studies. The library receives approximately 260 scholarly and popular periodical titles, and retains many back issues as a part of its permanent collection. All library materials are selected to meet the curricular needs of the college and its many programs of study.
A special, separate World Evangelism Resource Center collection has been established to support the college’s programs in missions and inter-cultural studies.
Each year the Director of the Library provides a “Library Guide” to assist students, faculty, staff and members of the community at large in getting maximum benefit from their use of the library and its resources.
In addition to the G.H. Cachiaras Memorial Library, Crossroads students also have access to the Rochester Public Library and the Goddard Library at the University Center Rochester.
The G.H. Cachiaras Memorial Library is a member of SELCO/SELS, the regional library systems for southeast Minnesota. These cooperative library agencies provide the library’s automated catalog and circulation system as well as numerous online databases and an interlibrary loan network for materials not available on campus.
