Programs at the Fullerton College Library

Here at the Fullerton College we feel that there are many ways to enjoy the Library. That’s why constantly create and refine programs to engage with students in a variety of areas of interest. 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.

We also hold library workshops, but with a twist. Students and faculty can join two threads of workshops going on throughout the semester: rotating workshops focused on some of the most current and sometimes unexpected topics in information literacy today, and gamified workshops that explore library resources in a fun and often challenging manner.

Check out how library services and sources can help you with your coursework today! Instructors can also request a workshop or library instruction session for their classes.

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