The mission of the Dr. Daniel and Mrs. Goldberg Library is to support the college’s mission by providing information sources in all formats in the quality and quantity that the students and faculty require in the pursuit of their academic goals. In addition, the library staff provides reference services and instruction in research and information literacy. Moreover, the Goldberg Library serves as a haven for quiet and reflective study.

​Dr. Daniel and Mrs. Madeline Goldberg Library​

Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary is building a world-class theological library to train individuals for 21st century ministry. The library has an historic beginning that tells the story of commitment and philanthropy.

Built in 1962 as the sanctuary of Whiting Avenue Baptist Church and re-purposed in 2007 as a library for Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary, the building has a rich legacy of equipping men and women for Kingdom service.

The school library began in late 1998. Mrs. Janet Rogers helped set up the first library. However, it was not until Mrs. Rhonda Jaynes was hired in 2002 to relocate the library to the Whiting Avenue address that the Seminary really began to take shape. Mrs. Jaynes began to catalogue the growing number of volumes and titles into the Athena Library System, allowing students to quickly access, check out, and track library materials. Later, Mrs. Virginia Faye Taylor was hired as Head Librarian and assisted in the design, layout, and move to the then current library facility. Other library administration professionals include, Mr. Seth Allen, Mr. Robert McInnis and Ms. Kathryn Harmon, Dr. Gwendolyn Peart. We currently have an interim Library Director.

Since the institution’s inception, the library has evolved from a Sunday school classroom with a handful of books to the former sanctuary turned library; to an exceptional theological library located at 7520 E. Independence Boulevard, Suite 100. On February 22, 2016, the Board of Directors accepted the entire library collection from Dr. Daniel Goldberg, Vice President for Academic Affairs. Following the acceptance of the collection, the official name of the library changed to the Daniel and Madeline Goldberg Library.

The Goldberg Library now houses over 24,000 print volumes, biblical research software, numerous eBooks, and maintains subscriptions to the ATLA Religion Database with ATLA Serials, ProQuest Religion and Philosophy eBooks, ProQuest Religion Database: Dissertations and Theses Global, Galaxie Software, and Sage Social Science/Humanities and Religion resources.

We look forward to growing and evolving to meet the needs of current and future leaders of the church.
