Congratulations to the LeRoy V. Good Library at Monroe Community College
– the 2011 RRLC Academic Library of the Year!
It isn’t easy helping 19,000 succeed with their studies, but that is what the LeRoy V. Good Library at Monroe Community College
is doing everyday. When RRLC visited last week, the library was packed with students at
every computer, classes in the labs, groups in the study rooms and on
the “group study floor”, as well as students reading and studying
quietly on the “quiet floor”. The students showed their appreciation by
nominating LVG at MCC for the 2011 RRLC Academic Library of the Year.
at MCC are incredibly diverse – in age, ability, background. It is
challenging to meet the needs of all. And there are so many students.
Yet the library succeeds in helping everyone,” said Marcia Eggleston, NYLA President
and a judge along with Todd Butler, Executive Director of the Ad Council of Rochester
. “Librarians and staff seem to know their community very well; they make everyone feel welcome!”
What is it that makes the LeRoy V. Good Library special, according to Director Ted Ciambor
“We see a wide range of students here, from those who have library
experience to those that have never set foot in an academic library. We
recognize that and try to have a student focus. We see each student as
an individual. We really focus on one-on-one connectedness.”
