The library collection in the Mennonite Library & Archives contains all of Hiebert Library's resources about Anabaptist/Mennonite history, theology, and practice. It also includes items by Mennonite authors on a variety of subjects. The collection includes books, periodicals, and audio-visual media. While the collection is most extensive for Mennonite Brethren subjects and authors, it includes resources about all groups within the Anabaptist/Mennonite family.
Most resources in the Mennonite Library may be checked out according to the same policies as items in the main Hiebert Library collection. Most Mennonite Library books published before 1950, however, may not be checked out (unless the library holds multiple copies). Items in the open stacks of the Mennonite Library may be taken to the front circulation desk in the main library to be checked out.
The Mennonite Library also has a rare book collection, consisting mostly of books published in the 17th-19th centuries. Rare books may only be used in the Mennonite Library reading room, and may not be checked out.
