Archbishop Iakovos Library

About the Library

The School's Library was formerly known as the Cotsidas-Tonna Library, which was built in 1960 and remodeled in 1998. The newly built Archbishop Iakovos Library was financed primarily through a funding campaign and donations initiated by the late Archbishop. It houses an extensive theological and cultural collection, as well as sacred artifacts and archives of Archbishop Iakovos. The library was dedicated on September 12, 1999, with President George Bush serving as Honorary Chairman of the Dedication Committee. When the exact site was being determined, the neighboring tree, which is over 150 years old, was preserved as a living landmark of the grounds.
