    The NEST Library is home to roughly 60,000 volumes, 80 periodicals and a unique holding of manuscripts, archives and rare books. The majority of these texts are in English, while works in Arabic, Armenian, Syriac and other languages can also be found. The subjects of Theology, Church History, Missiology, Philosophy and History compose the backbone of the NEST Library, and support its aim to facilitate and nurture the study of the Protestant faith and heritage in the Middle East.

    The library is located on the first floor of the NEST building in the lively Hamra area of Beirut.

    The NEST Library is used not only by faculty and students of NEST, but welcomes visitors engaging in research or study. Library privileges are available by special permission from the Librarian upon provision of adequate identification and payment of a non-refundable deposit. Books may not be taken out of the country.
