Hartnell College Library Celebrates 10th Birthday!


SALINAS, Calif. – The Hartnell Community College District proudly invites you to the Library’s 10th birthday celebration on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at 411 Central Avenue, Salinas, CA.  Join us for some cake, refreshments, and books!


The celebration will also promote the National Steinbeck Center NEA Big Read.  The Library and the Western Stage are participants this year in giving the community opportunity to join in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities.  Copies of the book Sun, Stone, and Shadows: Twenty Great Mexican Short Stories will be given out at the birthday bash.


The 68,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Library and Learning Resource Center was designed to meet the information and research needs of students in the 21st Century. It opened June 19, 2006.  This is the third library built for and at Hartnell’s main campus in its 96-year history.


The funding for the library came from local Measure H and state Proposition 47.  Hartnell College thanks the community for investing in the future of our region.


The two-floor facility houses traditional college library resources and services including Circulation Services, Reference Services, Technical Services, an Information Competency Center, and Computer and Media Services. In addition, within the library are a Faculty and Resource Center, 22 collaborative group study rooms, and much more.
