The construction of the Vicki L. Hollon Center for Oates Studies was made possible through the contributions of bricks, foundation stones, and cornerstones along with special gifts for the various collections in the library.  This growing  collection of resources serves both Clinical and Congregational Care Network members in a variety of ways, including resources for seminars and independent study.

Maintaining this library and continuing to add new resources also depends on the support of friends through one time gifts and small monthly contributions. We invite you to become a Friend of the Library today.
