The college library contained around eight thousand volumes, with valuable additions
annually made by donations and purchases. The Walton Classical Library, with an
endowment of $1,000, contained works on Greek and Latin subjects. The Darden English
Library, with an endowment of $1,000, contained books for the use of students in
the English department.
NOW: McGraw-Page library contains more
than 160,000 volumes (and has a capacity for 240,000 volumes), 1,050 subscriptions
to journals and newspapers, and 5,000 video and audio items. The library's on-line
catalog, MaconCat, and other databases are fully integrated with the campus network.
Twenty-five computers in the library provide access to the Internet. The history
of the United Methodist Church in Virginia, the college's archives, and other distinctive
collections are housed in the library's Special Collections area.
