C. Arthur Yergey Memorial Library
The Yergey Library is a central ministry of the Cathedral. Founded in 1978 by a grant from the Yergey family, the Library's entrance is located on the balcony of the Education Building, overlooking the courtyard.The Library's ministry extends from the Cathedral parish to the Diocese of Central Florida and the Orlando community. The Librarian is available on Sunday mornings from 9 a.m. until 12 noon, and during the week by appointment. You're welcome to contact the Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Library has been endowed by the Yergey family in memory of C. Arthur Yergey, a longtime Cathedral member and Senior Warden. The beautiful remodeling was made possible by a generous gift from the Yergey Family and was rededicated on February 26, 2012.
The collection numbers about 5,000 volumes. It comprises the Cathedral and Diocesan collections as well as the library of the former World Center for Liturgical Studies, probably the most complete liturgical collection in the Southeast. The comprehensive theological collection includes most versions of the Bible, commentaries, a wide selection of books related to Christianity, Judaism, World Religions, the Church Fathers, and a set of the Babylonian Talmud. The Circulating Collection and the Reference Collection include titles covering subjects as church history, prayer, the devotional life, spiritual healing, biographies of religious leaders, and more.
The Yergey Library has a beautiful collection of children's books, both fiction and non-fiction, that is continually expanding. Middle School students will also find lots to choose from in our Young Adult Collection. The Cathedral's Children's Ministry schedules a visit to the Library one Sunday each month for the kids in Children's Church to enjoy story time and have an opportunity to check out books.
