Guests & Community Borrowers

Information for borrowers who are not affiliated with AMBS

Welcome Guests!

We regularly welcome visitors from around the world and our own backyard. We want you to feel safe and comfortable here, no matter your status or walk of life.

The library collection includes Bible study resources and books on all aspects of ministry. You may use our library facility and read library materials during daytime business hours. The library has quiet, comfortable and attractive places for study and reflection. Small groups may reserve a study room at the service desk. Guests may access online resources during their visit to the AMBS library. Guests may inquire at the service desk about wireless Internet access or use of a library reference computer.

The AMBS wireless network extends outside of the library building. Guests to campus who have received the password by registering in the library and agreeing to the terms of service may be given a special library parking permit that allows them to access the Internet, including library online resources, from the main parking lot. Outdoor wifi is available to guests during daytime hours.

If you are from the local area or affiliated with a reciprocal borrowing institution, we invite you to apply for a community borrower card.

Behavior expectations

Because AMBS is a private educational institution, your use of the facility may be terminated at the sole discretion of AMBS. We expect a standard of behavior that ensures the safety and comfort of all library guests and preserves our library collections.

Library staff will ask you to leave our library or our campus if you:

  • are a minor who is not accompanied by a responsible adult
  • refuse to follow the library's expectations regarding speaking quietly (including making cell phone calls)
  • violate AMBS community behavior norms, including sexual misconduct, consumption of alcoholic beverages, possession of weapons, etc.

If you refuse to comply with instructions, staff may ask campus security personnel or local police to escort you from the facility.
