The Clark College Libraries will be closed during the Quarter Break. The Cannell Library will close at 6:00pm on Thursday, June 19th and reopen at 8:00am on Monday, July 7th.

Netbooks must be returned by the closure (Thursday at 6pm) or a late fine will be charged.

Although the libraries are closed, we are still checking in books and you can pick up your requests. Low staffing means we might not be available when you are, so contact us to make an appointment in advance by calling #360-992-2151.

Need to request or renew a book? You can always do so online by logging in to your library account at https://oswald.clark.edu/patroninfo. There may be service interruptions due to the migration to our new computer system, so please call or email us if you have any problems.

Need expert research assistance to finish that paper? You can always contact a librarian online (at this address: http://library.clark.edu/?q=content/ask-librarian) and you can get instant assistance via chat.

The votes are in!  Discover is the name for the new Clark College Libraries catalog. Congratulations to Amy Waite, Clark College Libraries Access Services Manager, whose suggested name was selected from over 60 entries in the library catalog naming contest. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Amy Waite graciously waived the $25 Clark Bookstore prize, so we conducted a random drawing of all contest participants and have contacted the winner.
