McCartney Library serves the Geneva College community by providing information and research assistance to students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends.
Its resources and collections include over 400,000 items, plus a growing array of electronic databases and books accessible 24/7 online. More materials are available from a worldwide network of libraries. Librarians provide research help to navigate these sources by individual guidance and group instruction.
The collegiate gothic building features two stained-glass windows inspired by the preaching of Dr. Clarence Edward Macartney. Group and individual study areas are equipped with wired and wireless Internet connections. The Library is where students, faculty and scholars can encounter and discuss great ideas of the past and present as they seek wisdom in becoming servant-leaders for Christ’s kingdom.
Geneva graduates pass the test for teacher certification in elementary education (Praxis II) at over a 99% rate in the first attempt–one of the highest pass rates in Pennsylvania.
