About the Library


The Biola Library has been a vital part of Biola since the founding of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles in 1908. Originally located in the main building at Sixth and Hope in downtown Los Angeles, the Library received its own building in the form of Rose Memorial Library on the La Mirada campus in 1959. As Biola grew over the decades, it became clear that a new building was needed. The current Biola University Library was dedicated and opened to the Biola community in the fall of 2001.
