Reid Temple Bible College Library

The library supports the faculty and students in preparing, equipping and empowering men and women for leadership in service in ministries of the Christian faith to the community and to the world. The library collections support the curriculum of the College and support research in areas related to religious scholarship.

To enhance access to information, the Library has partnerships with nearby Bowie State University and Lancaster Bible College, Greenbelt. Students may use the library at those institutions for additional materials to support academic programs at the Reid Temple Bible College.

The library also serves as a gateway to global information; serves as a community resource; facilitates learning and information literacy; integrates print and electronic resources, and supports students entering the world of ministry.
