In April, the display area of the Library was given over to stories and info about libraries.

Featured were portraits of people currently working in libraries or hoping to in the future.

Man kneeling near Library Cycle Kiosk in front of Learning Resource Center, holding sign reading, "In the Library we are all students and we can study any topic. No grades attached."
Library visitors were also encouraged to write messages the topic, “What do you like about the SCC Library?”
"What do you like about the SCC Library?" "Thank God for the staff and a brick and mortar building to come and relax, learn, and study in a quiet atmosphere! Eli "What do you like about the SCC Library?" "Helpful staff; Laptops; Quiet 3rd Floor; snacks are allowed!" "What do you like about the SCC Library?" "It's literally my second home. I spend at least everyday studying in the library right after class." "What do you like about the SCC Library?" "I can relax & focus on what I need to get done."

The SCC Library actually provides a program that trains people to work in libraries: the Library and Information Technology (LIBT) Program. As you can see, working in libraries is a tremendously rewarding career path; if you like being in the library, working to connect people with resources and information and contributing to your community, you should check it out!

Below are some of the books and videos that were included in the display. Explore the possibilities!

Do we have your attention now? Often you’ll see this sort of thing, an appeal to sex just to get you to pay attention to something else, like cars, whiskey, jeans, or even burgers. But no, we actually want you to think about sex; why so much of our culture seems to center on it, its physiology and politics. Come have a look at our display on the 2nd floor of the LRC through April, and check out a book or video.
