When Evangel University was founded, leaders demonstrated their commitment to academic achievement by building the Klaude Kendrick Library as the first permanent structure on campus. The building was completed in 1963. This commitment to research and scholarship has remained a priority for the library as we continually seek to improve library services and adopt electronic and technological resources.

As an Evangel student, you will have access to a wide variety of innovative library and media services as well as assistance from a committed staff of trained library professionals who are committed to your academic success.
