Borrowing Privileges

Students, staff, faculty, and alums of the Trinity Lutheran Seminary and Bexley Hall Seminary are our primary cardholders, however, we do grant borrowing privileges to local clergy persons (see further information below) and to our OPAL/OhioLINK visitors.

Important: IF you are a library card-holder with any one of our affiliated OPAL or OhioLINK libraries, you do NOT need to apply for a Hamma Library card ~ you may borrow from our shelves as an OPAL / OhioLINK visitor. You will be required to have your library card IN HAND at time of check-out.

Guest Patrons

Local clergy of any denomination are welcome to be “Guest Patrons” of the Hamma Library.

Guest Patrons pay an annual membership fee of $30.00.

Payment is made at the time of (initial) application, and at yearly renewal. Please make payment in the form of cash or check - we do not accept credit cards. Checks should be made out to: Trinity Lutheran Seminary.

We ask that our library and materials be treated with respect. We reserve the right to revoke library privileges should library equipment or materials be damaged or misused.
