Things to know about your library

The library should be a friendly, collegial environment that will allow the entire GCC community to learn. This requires library patrons to respect both the physical space and one another.  Please dispose of trash and recyclables in the proper receptacles. This is your library – let’s all take care of it!

The library encourages collaboration and conversation, as that is how some people learn best. We have space that will accommodate this, as well as space that will accommodate those that need silence. However, we do expect all patrons of the library – whether students, staff, faculty, or community members – to adhere to the GCC Standards of Behavior & Code of Conduct. If another person’s behavior in the library is unacceptable according to these standards, please ask the patron to cease that behavior and if it continues, notify a library staff member.

Quiet study, collaborative learning, library instruction, reference, classes, trainings, and events all take place in the Library.  Because of this, noise levels may vary. To help you find the part of the library that best suits your needs, here are some general guidelines.

If you need:

An active, busy space to meet with friends or colleagues or browse magazines
A really, really, absolutely quiet study area
A quiet space with minimal noise and distraction
A place for group study and collaboration
Comfortable seating, large tables, great views
Lots of computers
To talk on your cell phone
To listen to music or watch a movie
To have a snack or a drink
