St Paschal Library is the provincial library of the Order of Friars Minor, Holy Spirit Province, Australia. It is the main resource centre for Franciscan studies within Australia.
St Paschal Library is also open to interested members of the public.
The library houses a number of specialised collections. In 1988 the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) amalgamated its Missiology collection into St Paschal Library, and in 1995 the YTU collection was integrated. As the purpose of the three bodies is towards the education of Catholic clergy and laity, the combination enriches the overall collection.
