On September 22nd and 24th, Lorain County Community College dedicated the Barbara and Mike Bass Library/Community Resource Center in both private and public ceremonies.

The Barbara and Mike Bass Library/Community Resource Center is the knowledge gateway for our entire community.  Inside, patrons will have complete access to a collection of innovation resources to stimulate personal and professional growth. 

Already, the most popular area in the new library seems to be the Information Commons.  The Commons is located on the second floor.  It is here that visitors have access to 75 computer stations complete with Internet connectivity and the latest software, 48 wireless laptops for use throughout the building, two interactive video distance learning rooms and three smart classrooms.

Throughout the facility, patrons can utilize spaces designed to inspire collaboration.  There are several meeting rooms, 12 small group study rooms and furniture throughout the library.

Through a partnership with the Elyria Public Library, the Community Living Room on the first floor invites patrons of both library systems to explore the newest arrivals in personal enrichment and fiction books.  The children’s section in this space also offers many interactive learning opportunities.

The library’s “Main Street” is found on the first floor and is home to LCCC’s admissions, registrations, financial aid and student services for complete one-stop access.

The Barbara and Mike Bass Library/Community Resource Center represents an essential strategy for addressing LCCC’s growing enrollment.  For more information on the library please click here.
