Since 1875, Gardner A. Sage Library has stood at the center of our common life and mission. It has become a museum of the past, a deeply inspiring instrument for our future, and an enduring presence of beauty for our life together. Over the years, the Seminary community has added to the structure on two occasions; first in 1923 when the original design was realized with the addition of two transepts and the apse and second in 1983 with the addition of the reading court as the library and main building were re-oriented to the north to allow added parking for commuting students.
The Building a New Future campaign has committed two thirds of its goal to increase the Seminary's endowment holdings. In addition, gifts to the Seminary Fund and the Library Improvement Fund will be received and spent during the campaign's three year duration.
It is the intent of the campaign to raise $500,000 to update and upgrade the library for generations to come. We anticipate addressing the following areas in our historic and beautiful library: a fully accessible entrance on the west side of the library so those who are walking from our new north parking lot will be able to easily enter Gardner A. Sage Library, improved climate control through the use of air conditioning in all or a significant part of the library and new interior painting, lighting, carpeting, seating and security.
Thank you for your contribution to the Gardner A. Sage Library Improvement Fund which will be spent upon receipt and will make a world of difference for our community.
