Background Information

The Archbishop Gabriel M. Reyes Memorial Library is the official research information resource center of San Carlos Seminary, Holy Apostles Senior Seminary, and Lorenzo Mission Institute - at the service of the professors and seminarians. Its principle aim is to promote the intellectual and spiritual formation of seminarians residing at the San Carlos Pastoral Formation Complex.

The library, which used to be housed on the fourth floor of San Carlos Seminary, moved to its present location at the first floor of the San Carlos Graduate School of Theology.

A major part of the vast collection of the library was put together through the dedication, initiative, and efforts of Fr. John P. Zwaenepoel, CICM, the first Library Director.

Acquisition of new books, publications, periodicals, and various donations to the library are made possible through His Eminence, Jaime L Cardinal Sin, D.D., Archbishop of Manila, and the Father John Zwaenepoel Foundation, Inc.
