The College of Marin Library will be receiving a Golden Bell Award for Outstanding Student Program from the Marin County School Board Association on May 21, 2015 for an outstanding job revitalizing library services, re-establishing the IVC Library, and joining the MARINet consortium.
The Library hosted a new Friday Afternoon Author Series organized by the Emeritus Students of College of Marin (ESCOM) and Book Passage, a local and acclaimed book store. 3 outstanding local authors were featured and the events were well attended by community members, students, faculty, and staff.
Librarian David Patterson is the new co-chair for the college’s Basic Skills Initiative Steering Committee (BSISC).
The Library will be continuing the pilot Math Textbook Program launched in Fall 2014. Associated Students (ASCOM) provided funding for Intermediate Algebra textbook class sets and the Library provides support with purchasing, processing, and circulation. The College has started conversations on textbook affordability and how to involve faculty to address this pressing issue.
