You Can Look It Up: Edmonds CC Participates in Statewide Library Event

“Snapshot: One Day in the Life of Washington’s Libraries” organized by the American Library Association.

recently participated in “Snapshot: One Day in the Life of Washington’s Libraries.” This statewide project gathered statistics, stories and photographs to illustrate the importance of libraries.

“Students tell us our library is the best place to study and do homework,” said  Edmonds CCC Learning Resources director Lauri Kram. “They appreciate the quiet areas, the computers available for everyone to use, and the assistance of our librarians. It’s an environment that supports their success.”

On Library Snapshot Day April 10, as on most days in the college’s busy library, students used computer labs, asked for help at the reference desk, checked out textbooks, viewed videos, participated in information literacy classes, studied quietly or worked in study groups.
