Love to Read?

GRCC’s Library contains a great collection focused on resources for instructional use. But, if you’re like many of us, sometimes you just want to read something “fun.”  Did you know that you can request leisure reading titles to be delivered from MeLCat search for Aretha Frankling titleother Michigan libraries to GRCC for your use? For free?

Here’s how:

  1. Start at GRCC’s RaiderSearch Catalog and run a [Title] search for the book,  video, or CD  you want.
  2. If GRCC does not own the book, then click the [Search MelCat] icon which runs the same search in the statewide MeLCat Catalog.
  3. Select your title from the MeL screen and click [Get this for me] and follow the screen prompts. You’ll be asked to logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider Number.
  4. We’ll contact you when the title arrives from the lending library. When you’re done, drop it back at GRCC’s Library and we’ll return it!

It’s easy… free to GRCC… and, it will expand your reading options astronomically!

Graphic Novels @ the Library

Although the GRCC Library’s collection is primarily acquired to support the college’s curriculum, our staff realizes the value of providing students options for leisure reading.  Breaks from studying and research are necessary and well-deserved, after all!  The library offers students fiction and graphic novel reading selections – in print and ebook versions.

Come in today and check out the new graphic novel display that is on our Circulation desk, designed by our Evening Circulation Associate Toni Harrington.  To browse more titles, head up to the second floor of the library where the graphic novel section is located at the beginning of the circulating collection.
