About the Library

"Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity."

-Hermann Hesse


Welcome to the Library

The TVCC Library provides services to our students, faculty, college staff and members of the surrounding communities.The Library's mission is to advance creative, intellectual discovery and enrich the quality of life by connecting people with knowledge in an inspiring and accessible environment. Simply put, the staff are committed to aiding each individual who walks through the doors of the Library, physically or virtually, to find not only the information that they are seeking but a place where the search of information is safe and accessible.

Library services are not limited in any way to the building we are in.  We have a great space for quiet study, getting help, or just escaping.  There are quiet, comfortable spaces as well as individual and group study rooms. All study rooms can be reserved in advance for you or your group. Bring your coffee, kick up your feet next to the fireplace, and curl up with a good book or get some quality study time in. The library has plenty of books, CDs and DVDs for you to enjoy. Study rooms may be used to watch DVDs in groups or individually as well. The computer lab in the Library is available as long as we're open.Come and see us anytime. 

The Library provides equal access to all of our resources for students regardless of their location.  Visit our virtual space for online chat anytime.  Check out our apps page for the variety of apps available as well.

Through the online catalog, you can freely search through the TVCC Library as well as over 80 other Oregon libraries in the Sage Library System. This gives students direct access to the collections of all participating libraries including other academic libraries. Students can visit a Sage library in person or request items to be delivered to TVCC using the Sage catalog. The Library also uses WorldCat's services which allows students to search libraries across the United States and internationally. Students may ask a Library staff member for assistance or use the InterLibrary loan link on the Library website to borrow items not owned by TVCC or within the Sage system.

We are always looking for ways to improve library services. Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon.
