Welcome to the Library

The MCC library is located in the Learning Resource Center. It holds over 60,000 volumes, has a strong reference collection, and subscribes to over 400 periodicals.

The library offers numerous amenities including five group study rooms, individual study carrels, computers, Wi-Fi, laser printing (b&w and color), scanning and photocopying. A magnification device for printed material is also available. The Fireside Commons is a large, contemplative space that is a designated quiet study area and features a working fireplace. The Library Garden is also available during warmer months for members of the MCC community to enjoy.

Students can seek help with research for papers or projects from one of our reference librarians. The librarians are available to assist students in formulating research strategies, searching the library’s online catalog and research databases, and using library services. The “Ask-a-Librarian” reference service allows students to connect to a librarian 24/7 wherever they are. Students can request books and articles not available at MCC through our interlibrary loan service.

Any state resident of high school age or older with valid ID is welcome to register as a borrower at MCC’s library.
