The St. Nersess Library has one of the largest scholarly collections in North America specializing in Armenian theology, liturgy, history, language and culture. The books are mostly written in English, Armenian, Classical Armenian, as well as French, German, Greek and Italian.
The seminary has a special collection of old rare books which must be preserved. Mrs. Pisani has contacted a conservationist who has evaluated a few samples. The cost of conserving old rare books is high and will require a significant donation or grant to preserve these old precious books.
The library is open to the public on the following days when the librarian is present: Mondays and Wednesdays -- 10 am - 1:30 pm and on Fridays -- 10 am - 6:00 pm. Queries can be emailed to email@example.com or call (914) 273-0200.
