Welcome to the Brengle Library!

The Brengle Library is part of the total formation process of The College for Officer Training.  We seek to nurture the union of sound learning and vital Christianity.  We aim to provide access to key works relating to the disciplines of Salvation Army ministry.

The library primarily serves the instructors and students of the various training programs; we also serve corps officers and other Salvationists, and those researching The Salvation Army.

We take preparation for ministry very seriously, and operate on the basis of mutual respect.
