Concordia Lutheran Seminary Library

The CLS library contains approximately 20,000 books, 100 journals, and a number of videos, CDs, and DVDs. We also offer access to electronic databases.

Our library provides works in all areas of theology related to the text tradition of Lutheranism, and significant works from other traditions, both current and historically significant, with a minor focus on the history of Lutheranism, especially in western Canada.

In addition to the main collection, we offer two special collections: Parish materials (used for congregational ministry) and foreign-language materials (especially German, in support of the text tradition of Lutheranism)

CLS Library Service Update

We are in transition to the new library system. We will not be able to circulate books to external borrowers while we are adjusting to our new system. In the meantime, external users may use materials on site. We continue to look forward to providing the best service we can.
