The book will also be available at the LBCC Library. The return of Long Beach Reads One Book will close with a community event featuring George Takei at LBCC on Thurs., March 19.
No Workshops at this time.
New Library Online Catalog Starting Thurs., Jan. 2
The LBCC Library moved from the “Library Catalog” to a new interface called OneSearch starting on Thu., Jan. 2. OneSearch is used by all California State University system libraries. The LBCC Library hopes that the new universal interface used by most colleges and university libraries in California will bring familiarity and confidence when students search for library materials, regardless of location or college affiliation.
