The cafe beside the library has a ceiling! And our lovely new book cases are going in.

L Building, at 71 Sip Avenue, should be ready for classes in the Fall term. We can’t wait to get started over there! Make sure you come to visit us.

Updates on our new building

Developments at HCCC’s new building, ‘L’ building, in Journal Square, are coming along on schedule.

Yes, we’ll have two floors. And now you can see the stairs! They are smack in the middle of the library.

We’ll have a makerspace with a 3D printer, where we will run workshops and craft projects.

The last photo is your new study room. We hope you use and enjoy our great new facilities!

See you there in the Fall!
