Connecting a supportive learning environment.

Library Services
What We Do
We support rich reading resources and accessible digital databases within our library learning commons as well as digitally across campus and into our community. Our content partners include Placer County Libraries and the California State Library. 

Where We're Going

We've been visiting other libraries, including the revisioned Library Commons at Sierra College. Listen to Sierra's lead librarian, Sabrina Pape, share their process of revisioning the college library. Or simply click through pictures of this welcoming collegiate library learning commons. 


A Library "Think Tank"

Placer Union is embarking on a think tank process to determine a new vision for our libraries. Three areas will be under consideration by a diverse team of staff, faculty & community. 
  • Library Environmental Design: Furniture, Technology, Space
  • Curricular Uses: Research, Reading, Enrichment
  • Commons Services: Chromebooks, Tutoring, Distance Learning, etc.
Our first district-wide meeting is September 25, 2018. Site-based meetings will follow in October & November.


Library staff take in a training on the California State Library reading and research resources.
