The Fr. Raymond Kammerer Library & Learning Center expansion and renovation was re-dedicated on Oct. 20, 2012. Thanks to the generosity of Fr. Kammerer and his sister and brother-in-law, Rosemary and Mark Schlachter, Chatfield students now have a new and improved facility.
This catalog provides students access to more than 7 million books and items available at many public libraries. Using your Chatfield Library Card and a computer with Internet access, you can place holds on materials. Items requested from the online catalog that are not part of the Chatfield collection will usually take a day or two to arrive at Chatfield through interlibrary loan.
