Librarians host ‘learning resource’ open house

March 3, 2019

It was unusually loud inside the El Camino College Library on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019, as the librarians gave students a tour of the facilities.

The Library and Learning Resource Center Open House, which was hosted from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., was designed for students to learn about the library services and resources.

“We want our students to know that our library has knowledgeable, dedicated staff, equipment, and technology to support all El Camino students,” Outreach Services Librarian Camila Jenkins said. “It is very important, also, to let the students know that we have great adaptive resources for any who need special accommodations.”

The Library offers students access to a copy room, book rentals, free tutoring, and an open computer lab.
