The Charles & Gloria Jones Library is the busy information hub on the Lancaster campus. Here you will find students and college personnel doing research, picking up books, printing or copying materials, and meeting with friends for group study or simply to socialize. The library is open daily for students, LBC personnel, alumni, and community patrons to use.
For the fall semester 2012, the Library was moved to the Teague Learning Commons and named after Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, a renowned motivational speaker, profound author, and dear friend of LBC. He and his wife, Gloria, are honored with their names on the library. The Charles & Gloria Jones Library is a gift to the community and a resource for all who seek to study God and discover a deeper knowledge of His truths.
The Teague Learning Commons (TLC) demonstrates LBC’s commitment to academic scholarship in training the next generation of well-informed servant leaders. The building is named after LBC’s fifth president Dr. Peter W. Teague and his wife, Paulette. Dr. and Mrs. Teague exemplify what it means to be life-long learners and servant leaders.
The TLC offers many unique features. Natural light pouring through large windows, comfortable furniture, quiet spaces for individual reflection, small group study spaces, and classrooms combine to make it a welcoming environment for learning. Also a Hospitality Suite is available for large group meetings and seminars. Bennee’s Bistro offers specialty beverages and food for purchase. On Level 5 students can receive academic support through the Ally Center, which is comprised of the Academic Mentoring Services, the Disability Services, the Math Lab, and the Writing Services.
Items not returned ninety days after the due date will be declared “lost.” Patrons are responsible to pay the replacement cost plus a $10.00 processing fee for each lost item. LBC students will not be able to register until the lost item fine is paid or arrangements made for payment.
Kits, shelved on the compact shelving on Level One, can be reserved for an extended period for personal or group use. Contact Lisa at 717-560-8200, ext. 5385 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not re-shelve items yourself. Place any materials you remove from the shelves, but decide not to borrow, on the green RESHELVE SPOTS you find throughout the library.
The Charles & Gloria Jones Library is located inside the Teague Learning Commons. The Teague Learning Commons (TLC) was created to support and maintain an environment conducive to thought, research, and effective study groups. Come in and enjoy the natural light pouring through large windows, comfortable furniture, quiet spaces, small group study areas, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee from Bennee’s Bistro.
Students are permitted to bring food and beverages into the library. We ask that you that keep all beverages in covered containers and dispose of all trash when finished. Help us to maintain this atmosphere and to respect the needs of others.
Please be thoughtful of your fellow students and refrain from the following behavior:
The Library staff is committed to providing a safe environment for all users and takes seriously its obligation to manage disruptive behavior quickly and professionally. Please contact a staff member if you need assistance.
During regular library hours, any checked-out library material can be returned at the main counter. A book return slot is also located in the wall at the inner corner of the patio (on the parking lot side) for your convenience.
Thank you so much for thinking of us. We appreciate your support to LBC's community.
