Grace Van Dyke Bird Library is an academic library. This means that we support the mission of the college and all of the students and faculty. We won't have all of the latest and greatest book titles, but we will carry the resources needed to complete your research assignments.
The Library’s mission is to contribute and to support the college mission by serving as an information and research center and by providing direct and instructional support with a full range of timely information resources.
Visit one of the Bakersfield College campus libraries or contact us for assistance. You can email, call, or chat with a library staff member.
Our library, like most academic libraries, has these features:
24/7 online access to resources
reference help with faculty librarians
assistance finding materials
Books and ebooks
periodicals in print and electronic forms
group study rooms
Early College students are BC students! You are able to visit the libraries at the main campus or at the Delano Campus.
