Programs 2019

Programs at Fullerton College Library

Be it an art contest, a cooking competition, or a reading group, there are many ways to express your own opinions and explore the world of books. Here at the Fullerton College we feel that there are many ways to enjoy the Library. That’s why we constantly create and refine programs to engage with students in a variety of areas of interest.

Come meet like-minded students and enjoy your library’s vast collection of stories and ideas. Be open about sharing your ideas. Win prizes in competitions or leisurely discuss your thoughts with peers. Snacks are often included.

Students can join one or multiple programs as desired. Want to enter a competition every year? Go ahead!

Sign-up to receive email updates of upcoming competitions, updates on group reading materials, or any new and experimental programs we may be trying.

For questions about programs, contact Student Programming Librarian Val Macias at VMacias@fullcoll.edu.
