The Chapman Library forms part of the essential units in the Christian Service University College that offers Academic enhancement of the student-learner and Faculty works. The Library was named after the late Mr. William Henry Chapman, the first Principal of Christian Service College, now Christian Service University College. Six months before the admission of students in October, 1974, the World Evangelization for Christ, (WEC) Mission donated some books to the college which served as the nucleus of the library.

The library aims at becoming a centre of excellence in research, teaching and learning.

On February 13, the facility organized a ‘maiden Library open Day’ to sell some discarded books from the Library at affordable prices to all patrons. The event began an ‘annual open day celebration’ to draw patrons closer to the library to showcase and create awareness on its products and services.

According to the Librarian, Mr. Emmanuel Laryea, the modern library plays a cutting-edge role in providing learning/research aids to students and faculty, and for that reason, the ceremony served as a milestone in contributing to the quality information delivery of the Chapman Library.

He further highlighted some ongoing projects of the Chapman Library which he believed were significant to encourage more patronage. They included the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), an online system that enables users to search the Library from locations outside the premises and the introduction of the Library Newsletter which was scheduled to be produced once every semester.

Meanwhile, a donation worth GH¢1,500 was made towards the purchase of a scanner while the Assemblyman for the Odeneho Kwadaso Area, Nana Prempeh pledged his support for the acquisition of a printer to the Chapman library in an effort to help overcome some of the current challenges facing institutional libraries in the Country.
