Remember, while we are closed, you can still access our online resources from anywhere with an internet connection. Visit our home page to access databases, as well as a chat service that will connect you with a librarian for assistance, 24/7. Yep, even on Thanksgiving Day! But we hope you will be enjoying a break and not thinking too much about school work.

The smell of fall leaves, pumpkin spice, and, yes, new books are in the air at VWCC. Stop by the library’s top floor to see the new book shelves. Want to research or read about the Arab Spring, the culture wars, or recent White House residents (Barack, Michelle, George, and Laura)? We have books about the business of food, the culinary arts, insanity in the modern world, Vikings, and why everyone tries to create an illusion of happiness and perfection through social media and what that means for society. So stop by and visit us soon. We can’t wait to see you.
