For Visitors

Library Access & Borrowing

All library users 18 years of age or older must have a current Biola ID, Alumni ID, Biola library card, or day pass for entrance. Guests may apply for a library card or day pass at the Reception Desk. Children (ages 13-17) of guests must remain with a parent or guardian at all times while using the library. Library entrance or borrowing may be purchased for a nominal fee. The type of card applied for will determine the level of access and borrowing privileges.

See Library Access and Borrowing & Circulation for more information.

Code of Conduct

The Biola Library Code of Conduct is designed to create a safe and quiet environment for all patrons to enjoy. The library and its contents is a shared resource and, as such, requires all patrons to treat it, and the other patrons who use it, with respect and consideration. Library users are responsible for informing themselves of library policies.
