    The T. J. Jones Library provides the best resources with superior service in a welcoming environment.


    The library at North Central University is named for Rev. Thomas James Jones (1896-1970). Originally from England, Rev. Jones joined the faculty at North Central in 1946. A highly-skilled teacher who valued reading and study, he donated a large portion of his personal library to help North Central start its first library collection.

    The T. J. Jones Library is located on three floors of a beautiful historic neoclassical mansion in downtown Minneapolis. The building was originally the Tourtellotte Memorial Deaconess Home, in association with Asbury Hospital (which is now Carlson Hall).
