“By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; and through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.“
The walls of Rolfing Library house over 225,000 resources. Imagine the number of hidden gems. Often we don’t know what we’re looking for until it finds us. That’s why we unearth gems and put them on display, so you can enjoy the treasure while you’re here.
Books, journals, movies, and audiobooks will all be unshelved and profiled so that you can decorate the rooms of your soul with rare and beautiful treasures.

You’ll find research aids from people who have been there before. Engage with articles about study habits, how to use resources, and efficiently navigate databases to find relevant information. These articles will help you refine your study and research processes. The humble learner will get better.
5. You’ll be in the know about upcoming talks.
“Listen to advice and accept discipline and in the end you will be counted among the wise.”
We have phenomenal faculty at Trinity. Most the time you only hear them in the classroom, and depending on the class, it may or may not be the platform for them to speak into pressing current affairs. Their particular expertise give them a unique vantage point to speak into relevant extra-scholastic topics. Last semester Rolfing Library hosted four faculty members speaking into various topics, such as, living as a Christian in our society that’s experiencing unprecedented changes in sexual norms, and how we conceive of the pastorate in light of of current social pressures. The insights gained will help you think through these issues as you move from Trinity out to the world at large. And there is more to come this semester.
