Brown Library Welcomes You!

Brown Library welcomes all students, faculty, and staff back to campus. We invite everyone to visit our building and take advantage of the resources and services.

Library Services are on the top level (2nd floor) of the library building. This floor is a “quiet floor” that is the perfect peaceful location for reading and quiet study. Five comfortable study rooms are available for currently-enrolled students to use. Traditional print resources (books, magazines, newspapers, and journals) are also available on this floor, along with access to library databases and other electronic resources and guides. Our Circulation and Reference staff members look forward to serving you.

The Academic Link occupies the main level (1st floor) of the library building. This floor, known as the Link Learning Commons, is home to VWCC’s tutoring/academic success programs such as one-on-one and group tutoring programs and the walk-in Math Center. Computers and study rooms are available for collaborative active learning. The Link Learning Commons is a comfortable and invigorating place to study, learn, and work.

The Ground Floor (GF) of the library building hosts the Testing Center, the walk-in Writing Center, and the Link Lab in room B17. The Testing Center administers the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) for English & math, as well as make-up tests, and proctored exams for all asynchronous distance learning courses. The Writing Center provides assistance with papers for any class. The Link Lab-B17 computers are available for student use.

Come see us soon!
