Library Open at 75% Capacity
The Biola University Library is now open at 75% capacity for use by Biola students, staff, and faculty. We hope to be able to open to Biola alumni and community members at a future time. Masks must be worn inside the building, and a brief health screening will be required for entry. After completing the form, tap your Biola ID card or device with your Eagle ID at the turnstiles. Food and drinks are not allowed at this time, except for water in a covered container. Seating has been reduced, and physical distancing will be enforced. Study rooms are limited to one user at a time and cannot be reserved. Please sanitize your hands before using the collection, and enjoy your stay!
Rare Spanish Bible Exhibit
The Biola Library partnered with the Biola Hispanic Conference to create an exhibit on display in the middle level of the library to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Reina-Valera translations of the Bible. The exhibit contains two Bibles - the Biblia del Oso (1596) or "Bear Bible," and the Cipriano de Valera (1602) known as the "Jug Bible." This exhibit provides an understanding of the diversity of our faith community and the ways in which Biola’s mission to spread the gospel is shared by other cultures.
An online video presentation of the history of these important Bibles is available in both English and Spanish.
