You’ll notice something new when you walk by the Information Commons @ CTC. Elegant lettering on the windows proudly declares:
LIBRARIES CONNECT ENGAGE LEARN
You’ll find these same words on the header of the Clark College Libraries website. Those words are what we’re all about: Making connections between and among students, faculty and information, providing opportunities for engaging and interacting with information, and embracing the learning opportunities that meet each of us every day.
Special thanks to our colleague in Facilities Services, Thor Tesdale, who worked with us on this project. His suburb craftsmanship makes it possible for us to share our message with everyone who walks by.

Libraries across the state are participating in WA Library Snapshot Day by collecting statistics, comments, and photographs from a typical day.
Please stop by the Information Commons on April 12 to use our computers or study rooms, check out laptops, calculators, or reserve materials, look over the new browsing collection of books, and visit with Kitty and Connie.
We’ll also be showing a selection of TED Talks videos in Study Room 219B, so drop in and enjoy the virtual presentations.
Be a part of our “day in the life of libraries” and help to tell the story of the impact of libraries on the Clark College community. The Information Commons at CTC is open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. We’ll be posting photos to our Facebook page throughout the day (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cannell-Library/15378163723?v=info).
Snapshot Day is a project of Clark College Libraries, the Washington Library and Media Directors’ Council, and American Library Association (ALA).

Timmy Maw, Camila Crespo and Lars Kysar explore books in the library’s new browsing collection. Stop by CTC 219 and find something to read!
We are excited to have started a book collection in the Information Commons (library) at CTC! It is growing daily. Please stop by and let us know what books you’d like to have available at our campus. Students can now conveniently access books at our location, as well as on the main campus or through Summit.
Stop by the iCommons and enjoy the amazing photography of Political Science instructor Daniel Cascaddan. His photography demonstrates his eye for capturing the unusual and his talent for creating visual montages. Daniel shows us a different way to look at things that we might just walk right on by!
Thanks to the generosity of Nancy Johnson and her colleagues in the BTEC department, students can borrow a 10-key calculator with tape from the Information Commons at CTC. This Sharp EL-2630PIII features a large 12-digit, 2-color printer, TAX/GT/AVG conversion functions and Calendar and clock functions. Keys are coated with Microban antimicrobial protection.
Students may check out the calculator for 3 hours at a time and use it anywhere in the CTC building.
