MHCC Adds Library to Maywood Park Campus
Posted: Oct. 21, 2010
Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) announces the opening of a new library to serve the needs of students and residents in northeast Portland.
The 500 square foot facility is located at MHCC’s Maywood Park Campus, located at 10100 NE Prescott St., near 102nd Avenue and Sandy Boulevard. The library gives MHCC students and others an important resource close to home, or where they attend classes.
“The facility is stocked with books and other materials in English, as well as Spanish. The collection may soon be expanded to include materials in Vietnamese and Russian, to serve the diverse population of the area,” says Sergio Lopez, library coordinator for Maywood Park. “We also have a number of small laptop computers available for two-hour check-out.”
Lopez anticipates the library will be popular with students and local residents. (Library patrons do not need to be registered for classes to use the facility.) The hours of operation are Mondays – Thursdays, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Fridays, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., and Sundays, noon – 4 p.m. The library is closed holidays.
MHCC’s Maywood Park Campus offers classes in writing, math, psychology, ESL (English as a Second Language), ENL (English as a Non-native Language), GED (General Educational Diploma), Adult Basic Skills, Workforce Development and non-credit community education. The campus offers college placement testing, GED testing and student advising services. A Community Skills Center offers self-paced computer and office skills classes designed to upgrade students’ job skills.
