Borrowing Materials

General Circulation

Most items may be checked out for nearly four weeks with one optional renewal. Patrons of the Phoenix Seminary Library also have privileges at several other libraries around the Valley through the Theological Library Cooperative of Arizona (TLCA).


Renewals can be made by phone at 602-850-8070 or on under the Library menu. You may also renew books by emailing the Library staff.


Library materials which are not checked out (and located on the stacks) can be secured for specific individuals by being placed on hold. Items will remain on hold for one day and may not be checked out by other patrons during this time.


Checked out materials can be placed on reserve, thus preventing another patron from checking them out again once returned to the library. When a reserved item is returned to the Library it automatically goes on hold. We will attempt to contact the patron and inform them they have one day to check out the item.
