Library and Learning Commons

Imagine... A redesigned Main Campus Library and Learning Commons will allow Community College of Philadelphia to lead the way in revolutionizing how learning happens. Students will feel like they have a space that belongs to them at the heart of the College.

Enhancements include a new Learning Commons with readily available support services, multimedia and other technology rooms, several multi-use spaces for individual and small group study, a study lounge with a café, as well as a collaborative makerspace where students and faculty can gather to develop creative projects using a variety of tools and materials.
