John Smyth Library Update

As has been the case throughout the 70 years of its existence, the library is an integral part of IBTS. Our library serves IBTS as well as the wider European Baptist community and invites researchers interested in Baptist witness in Europe, in European Baptist identity, mission and practice to spend productive research time in the serenity of its space.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce that our new Library Oversight Committee is active and intentionally working towards having the library fully operational. The first meeting of this committee was marked by enthusiasm and dedication to ensure effective library services.

We will share further updates regarding the timeline in due course. In the meantime, you can contact the IBTS office for any questions.
