Located in the center of campus, Olivet’s Benner Library & Resource Center invests in scholarly resources, current technology, and knowledgeable staff in order to promote student success, academic excellence, and lifelong learning.
In addition to four floors of books, periodicals, and reference materials, Benner Library & Resource Center provides students with comfortable places to study alone or to work on projects with others. With state-of-the-art computer labs and printing access, the library serves the academic needs of the Olivet community.
And with a coffee shop near the reference section, you might actually look forward to those late nights of hitting the books in Benner! For specific information on services, hours and resources, visit Benner Library Online or call 815-939-5354.
