The Redemptorist Community Libraries

Jul 11, 2023

The Redemptorist Community Library  is based in the Formation House in Kew, Melbourne, and serves the community who live there. The community is made up of priests, academics, students, and the staff who support their mission.

The Library contains a huge variety of literature from text books to support the students’ study, to research material used by the academics.  It is a general theological library with particular strengths in  systematic theology, biblical studies, moral theology and ethics, and sociology of religion.  There is a large section on Redemptorist history and mission.

The library also includes a collection of poetry, novels and political biographies.

The library is not open to the public but books may be borrowed on interlibrary loan or by arrangement with the librarian.
