A start-up grant of $100,000 from the Albert and Rosemary Joseph Foundation, as well as ongoing support from the Order of St. Ignatius of Antioch, has allowed the library to build its collection steadily since its inception in 1987. Significant additions to the library have come from the collections of Dr. George Atiyeh, former head of the Near East Division at the Library of Congress; the Saint Athanasius Academy of Orthodox Theology in Sacramento, California; and Dr. Michael G. Farrow, former Vice-Chair of the Department of Sacred Music of the Antiochian Archdiocese. The library will consider donations of materials which are in good condition and are directly relevant to the library’s mission, as outlined in our Donation Policies and Procedures.
