Thomas Merton Reading Room

Thomas Merton Reading Room

The Thomas Merton Reading Room is located in the VST library on the main level. This beautiful room and collection are the product of a relationship between the Vancouver School of Theology and the Thomas Merton Society of Canada. Through the kind donations of individuals and the society, and the ongoing development through VST, the reading room holds one of the most complete collections of Mertonalia in North America. Holdings include writings by and about Thomas Merton, four journal subscriptions, audio visual collections and special items. Items from the Reading Room may only be used in the library, however the VST circulating collection holds most of the book titles as well.

Use the library catalogue to search for titles of interest. Simply enter MERTON in the search box in the VST catalogue and everything by and about Merton will appear.
