Library

We love our library

The library at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary is the perfect place on campus to get some quiet, read while using an exercise bike or take a nap in a hammock.

Oh, also books. You’ll find lots of print and online books and plenty of journals in our library. You’ll also find knowledgeable and caring professionals to help you find and use these resources.

Our library is green!

The AMBS Library was the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified theological library in North America. Find out more about our green building design.

Library hours

The library is open to the general public. Masks are optional for those who are fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. Please wear a well-fitted face mask under any of the conditions posted at our entrance. Masks continue to be available at our service desk.

The library building entrance is locked at 5 p.m. After that time you will need to ring in and show ID.
