The William Broadhurst Library houses more than 150,000 titles and over 320 periodicals with significant resources in the areas of the Wesleyan doctrine of holiness and on the history of the Church of the Nazarene.  We also now have more than 120,000 electronic books that our students can access (via our online card catalog) from home or while in the library.

Temporary Interlibrary Loan Changes:

After December 15th, you will be unable to request books from other libraries from within the library online catalog.  This is due to the change we are making in moving to a new library system in March.

HOWEVER, you can still request books from other libraries by filling out the Materials Request Form or writing out the request and submitting it to the library front desk.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

If you have questions, please contact us at 816-268-5471 or
