Welcome to the Library

Hello College Success Students,

Welcome to the library! I've created the lesson plan below to familiarize you with resources to help you explore careers and colleges, and introduce you to the library. If you have any questions, reach out! You can can chat with a librarian on the this page or on the library catalog. You can also make an appointment to meet with a librarian one-on-one over Zoom.
