The Loren T. and Melva M. Swedburg Library

In 1996, the NCC library was officially named the Loren T. and Melva M. Swedburg library in honor of the long-time and beloved Academic Dean and faculty member of Nebraska Christian College. Joining the faculty in 1953, Dean Swedburg began a work which spanned three decades. He was later joined on the faculty by his wife, Melva, who became a recognized leader in the field of Christian Education. The library is lovingly dedicated in honor of their example of a Christian walk, commitment, and love of learning.
