As per their webpage:

The Menaul Historical Library of the Southwest, located in Bennett Hall on the school campus, was founded in 1974. The library serves as the official archive of Menaul School and John Hyson Educational Center in ChimayĆ³. In addition, it is a primary source of information on Presbyterian and related Protestant history in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah.

All these materials are accessible on site to researchers, students, alumni, churches and other interested parties. Books on Presbyterian, mission school and southwestern history published by the library are available for sale.
