Bishop Payne Library


"Seek the Truth, Come Whence It May, Cost What It Will." This motto, inscribed on the entryway of the Bishop Payne Library, sums up the library's purpose on campus: to facilitate the search for God's truth through the educational experience at VTS. As the research center on campus, the library's mission is to provide patrons with research assistance in utilizing the library's rich collections.

The Bishop Payne Library staff includes four professional librarians, two archivists, and several support staff to assist patrons in their research. It is the policy of the Library to provide all patrons with professional, equitable, and courteous reference assistance.

Reference assistance is available to faculty, staff, students, and the general public upon request.  For directions to the campus please click here.
