Library Hours

The Princeton Theological Seminary Library is open via swipe card to PTS students, faculty and staff 9am-5pm Monday-Thursday (no entry after 4:30pm) and 9am-1pm Friday (no entry after 12:30pm). Swipe into the library using your Seminary ID card and present your ID at the Circulation Desk. The card reader is located to the left of the front doors.

Each individual is required to swipe in themselves; do not allow anyone else to enter. At this time, guests of any type are not allowed in the building. Swipe card access will be possible until 30 minutes prior to closing.

Current PTS policy for the library includes maintaining a six-foot distance between yourself and others and wearing masks at all times while in the building. Consequently, food consumption is not allowed in the building. The Brick Café is closed until further notice.
