The CTS Library houses a collection of over 30,000 books, primarily related to Christian studies. The collection includes two special collections:

The Sri Lanka Collection

A cross section of books on the history, modern development, past and present culture, ancient civilisation, and panoply faiths of the island-nation, this collection is a valuable resource for scholars researching numerous aetiologies as well as the prevailing ethic of Taprobane, Serendip, Ceilao, Zeilan, Ceylon or Sri Lanka.  

The ISSR Science and Religion Collection 

The International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) has created a specialized library collection in the field of science and religion. These 225 books span all important areas, issues, and disciplines, and feature key international and intercultural voices. CTS is just one of three institutions in Sri Lanka and 150 worldwide to be awarded this prestigious collection.
