Due to COVID-19, library visits are by appointment only at this time.
We, the Payne family, bear the challenge of COVID-19 with you trusting and operating in the fullness of God’s unflinching love for all of creation. The Seminary has benefited from this love: Teaching and learning have not been disrupted. Online distance education, into which we prophetically stepped several years ago, is allowing our mission and vision to persist, not least over the last several months of the pandemic’s grasp.
That said, we are institutionally observing protocols to protect faculty and staff while they are on campus. Never more than 50 percent of our professional community, for example, is working in the main administrative building at once. To that end, while the library is currently staffed, we request that you arrange an appointment if you want to visit. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 937.971.2853. Appointments allow us to protect you and ourselves through social distancing and face covering (required). Appointments can be made from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm, Monday through Thursday.
Otherwise, you may find statewide information at coronavirus.ohio.gov.
