Media Center

We designed our media center with the needs of our students and staff in mind. We invite our students and staff to access our resources at any time during library hours.

Early childhood and lower division students participate in weekly classes through which they gain exposure to literary concepts and themes. All BCS students and faculty have access to the collection of fiction, non-fiction, and reference materials. The media center is another location on campus where students may use computers and monitored internet access. Students access our collection and check out materials via our online system.

Media Center Hours:
7:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
