Steven R. Sylvester Memorial Library

Our library is named in honor of Steven R. Sylvester, a former student of the Bible College. Steven was enrolled at SFBC from 1996 until his untimely death in 2000. The President, along with our Board of Directors, wanted to honor Steven and dedicate the library in his memory. As a central training ground for the next generation of Preparing men & Women for Ministry, the Steven R. Sylvester Memorial Library is the “heart of the institution.” South Florida Bible College received a donation from the Harcourt M. and Virginia W. Sylvester Foundation in honor of Steven R. Sylvester. The library serves as a resource for academic excellence and spiritual strength for students and faculty.

Our Library currently has more than 17,000 books, videos, and audio CDs which are available to students and faculty. The library also makes table top PC and Apple computers available to all students and faculty during Library hours. Students can access the library catalog not only from the school campus, but also from their home. By going through Populi students can access electronic peer reviewed journals, articles, and eBooks.

Library staff are available during library hours to aid students and faculty in locating resources for their research, homework, and academic studies. The library has quiet rooms allowing students to work in solitude or in small groups. There are also circular nook tables in the public access area of the library which allows students to study in private or in small groups. The library is equipped with a printer to assist students in their printing of assignments.

“You are born into this world innocent and protected
always wanted and never neglected
as the Lord intended His children to be.
What a wondrous system this is and who else could make it so,
but He, our Father God.”
-Steve Sylvester
