Grant & Donation Supported Projects
During the fall semester, the FC Library promoted an essay contest called the 2016 Fullerton College First Ever Banned Books Essay Contest to celebrate and promote Banned Books Week. Banned Books week is an annual awareness campaign spearheaded by the American Library Association that celebrates the freedom to read. Throughout human history, and across many countries and cultures, many books have been banned, confiscated, censored, destroyed in bonfires, had content edited out, challenged in schools, and many authors and their readers have been fined, imprisoned, threatened, assaulted and even executed for their association with banned books that some authorities and governments did not agree with. As such, Fullerton College students took up the challenge to pick up a banned book, read it, and then write an essay about it for the chance to win cash prizes generously provided by the Friends of the Fullerton College Library.
FULLERTON COLLEGE: A PICTORIAL HISTORY is a project of the Fullerton College Library that utilizes its archival resources to produce an overview of the college’s hundred year history through images. The images were culled from the library’s collection of photos, Torch yearbooks, The Hornet student newspaper, catalogs, miscellaneous publications, and ephemera as well as some outside sources.
The Friends of the Fullerton College Library generously donates funds to the FC Leisure Reading Book Group to support its mission of promoting leisure reading.
The Friends funds have purchased books for all the group attendees including, One Plus One by Jojo Moyes, I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
Fullerton College students are invited to create a winning art piece that features historic FC Library (FCL) catalog cards. Artwork may be inspired by the text on the catalog cards – or students’ experience of libraries/books. Winning art is displayed in the Fullerton College Library. Prizes for this contest are funded by the Friends.
The Friends group solicits bequests, gifts and raises monies for the purchase of library materials, equipment and other outlay needs as identified by the Library staff.
