Having Fun Isn’t Hard When You’ve Got A Library Card

Each day next week we will feature one of our wonderful Learning Resource Department’s employees. Make sure to thank them for all the hard work they do next time you see them on campus!

Many services are available in the Katharine L. Boyd Library. The Sandhills Community College Learning Resources Department is comprised of the Katharine Boyd Library and the Learning Resources Computer Lab and houses the Hastings Art Gallery and the Barbara Cole Children’s Literature Center. The Katharine L. Boyd Library provides comfortable, pleasant surroundings for study and leisure reading in a 26,000 square foot building. Library materials are selected to support and supplement academic programs and to encourage use by Community Patrons. Our collection includes more than 78,000 items and extensive periodical holdings which include subscriptions to local, state, and national newspapers. Learning Resources provides 24/7-365 access to online databases such as NC LIVE, Credo reference and Opposing Viewpoints. The library’s collection of over 2,000 DVDs contains instructional programs, feature films, documentaries, musicals, classic children’s films and PBS programs. The Learning Resources Computer Lab is a fully staffed student support computer lab and a proctoring center. Boyd Library is available for use by SCC students, faculty and staff. It is also available to residents of (or those who work in) Moore and Hoke counties who are 18 years or older. A free Community Patron Library Card can be obtained by presenting a picture ID or other proof of residency. Like so many of the programs and facilities at Sandhills Community College, the Boyd Library has been enhanced by generous support from members of our community. However, there are many areas in the library that are decades old and used by tens of thousands of patrons each year and are in great need of replacement and improvement. We invite the community to join us in helping maintain and improve our library by becoming a Boyd Library Benefactor. To make a gift as a Boyd Benefactor, please mail your contribution to the SCC Foundation, Attn: Germaine Elkins, 3395 Airport Rd, Pinehurst, NC 28374. Feel free to call Germaine with questions (910) 695-3706.
