MCC receives grant for library materials

CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County College Library will expand its collection of print and audiovisual materials of interest to African-American and Latino students.

The expansion is made possible from a $5,000 “Back to Books” federal grant for a project titled “The Changing Faces of McHenry County,” according a news release from the college.

Library officials will survey students, faculty and staff this summer to identify types of subject matter to buy, including print and audiovisual materials such as CDs and DVDs. These materials will be available to students, faculty and community residents in the fall.

Community residents may check out materials from the MCC Library, especially those who are not served by a public library. This grant is funded with federal Library Services and Technology Act funds awarded to the Illinois State Library by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
