Public Library

The Bethlehem Bible College Public Library offers a resource for students to improve their academic education and is also open to the public. It is the first public library in the Bethlehem area, offering the local community opportunities to research, increase literacy, and develop themselves.

There are over 24,000 volumes in the library, in both Arabic and English. The collection includes selections for all ages, including secular books, Christian books, and reference books. In 2012 we added 1,000 volumes, many of which were gifts from BBC supporters. We have also expanded our library space to include a reference room. In addition, the BBC public library offers a comfortable space where children can sit in the Children’s Room and look at books and watch videos.

The library is essential to the life of the college, enhancing our academic education, while allowing a resource for community outreach activities, such as a children’s summer camp and reading groups throughout the year.
