Wright Library is open via swipe card to Princeton Seminary students, faculty, staff and visiting scholars. We look forward to welcoming all others back into the building when the public health situation improves.

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. Swipe card access will be possible until 30 minutes prior to closing.

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.

Current Princeton Theological Seminary policy for the library includes wearing masks at all times while in the building.

NOTE: Swipe card access will be possible until 30 minutes prior to closing. The Circulation Desk closes 15 minutes before the library closes.
