I already said what it means and bradenlsmyson just gave a bit more in depth explanation. It means book or books - because the Bible is a collection of books.

Bible comes from the Egyptian word for parchment, byblos. The Greek word biblios means books or scrolls. Later, it was translated into Latin, biblia, meaning "book." The Bible is more than a single book. It is a library--ta biblia, which means "the books."
