The John C. and Marie E. McCarthy Library Media Center provides a welcoming space for independent study, research, quiet collaboration and recreational reading. The librarians work closely with faculty to teach our students to access, evaluate and use information, both online and in print. The goals of the library are to prepare students for college level research as well as foster a love of reading and a curiosity for knowledge.
