Welcome to the Barbara and Mike Bass Library/Community Resource Center located on the Lorain County Community College (LCCC) campus. The LCCC Bass Library is here to help the campus community and the general public find the information and resources they need to be informed and succeed with their studies. Not only does the Library include books, ebooks, articles, magazines, newspapers, academic journals, and databases, it also provides research and reference support, open banks of computers, assistance with technology, group student rooms, quiet study spaces, some course material, and a warm and cozy fireplace for reading and chatting. 

The LCCC Bass Library is honored to partner with the Elyria Public Library System (EPLS) in offering access to our joint collections within the Bass Library building and diverse programming for all ages to area residents. The LCCC and EPLS developed this partnership in 2008 to support the expanding needs of our community for learning, access to technology, and personal growth and development.
