Also, there is a cosy lounge and pantry for students and faculty to have light refreshment and interaction during their tea-break, and birthday celebrations.
There is a library that houses over 15000 volumes, which has an adequate variety of missiological and Biblical reference and resource materials and useful books to provide help for students to do their research works. The library is fully air- conditioned. Some chairs and tables are available to enable the students to do their research work in the library itself. Books are signed out on a trust basis by the student since he/she realizes his/her role of being honest and reliable stewardship to God, in taking good and proper care of His provision of books and resource materials, as found in the school library. There is a small annual library membership fee.
