The Oesterle Library at North Central College

The Library was built in 1953 to serve the needs of North Central College and the Evangelical Theological Seminary. In 1974 the Seminary and its library moved to Evanston. The top two floors of the library facility were extensively renovated in 1984-85 through a gift from Clare and Lucy Oesterle for whom the library is named. The library contains 123,000 volumes and subscribes to 659 periodicals. It uses the Dewey Decimal system.
