Upper Level

The upper level of the Library is home to approximately one half of the Library's circulating book collection and also has great spaces for relaxing and studying.

Upper Level Archives & Special Collections
In addition to the main Library collection, the College also maintains a large number of specialized collections, often unique to Bethany and unavailable anywhere else in the world. Due to the rare nature of these collections, the materials in them must be used in the Library. Upper level collections include:2165CampbellRoom1.jpg
