The CCBC Library is currently open by appointment only.
But the Library has lots of resources and tools to help you through this transition. Take a look at the different tabs on this guide for help with research (lots of videos, tutorials, and quizzes), choosing a topic, Fake News (something we all want to be wary of during this health crisis), and more. Take a look at our guide below for Adjusting Your Study Habits During COVID-19.
Librarians are also providing virtual library help through Zoom. You can video or text chat with a Librarian for help with research, citations, or other questions you may have.
