It is exam time! and you may find yourself longing for spring break. While you are studying in the library, take you mind on a “visual vacation”. Explore the library’s Culture Shock! series and plan you next vacation. Or look at some of the beautiful National Park and outdoor adventure books in our collection. It’s okay to take a break and dream for a moment. Studies show that looking at pictures of inspirational images, or photos of places you have been, help us to shed unwanted stress. One of my favorite books is, National Parks : America’s Best Idea : An Illustrated History. And there’s the book, Everest : Summit of Achievement, an inspiring book illustrating that you can finish what you set out to accomplish.

The Library would like thank the Student Senate for their generous class gift of $800! The money will be used in two areas.
1) To assist in the development of a classic and popular collection of graphic novels.
2) To acquire more LGBT books and media to diversify our print and media collections.
Many students, and even a few English faculty, have come to the library looking for graphic novels as leisure reading. We are excited about providing what you’ve asked for and will work on developing a small collection of graphic novels. We are also pleased to add a list of new LGBT books and film documentaries to our library. These new additions will be great resources to LGBT students and faculty. We are so grateful to have a Student Senate that recognizes and values library services.
The Library is committed to our Mission of providing resources and services that support and enhance the Core Values of Harper College. We respond to our patron’s informational needs by developing, maintaining and providing access to a balanced collection of materials and services that reflects the full range of diversity of the college community. Thanks again!
