new library exteriorThe ASOCC Board Monday (Dec. 10) approved a grant of $250,000 to go to Orange Coast College's Foundation in its campaign to raise $500,000 to expand the book collection of the new Library and to increase student access to technology.

The campaign is also supported by OCC's Friends of the Library.

With the ASOCC grant, plus a recent donation of $10,000 from the Orange County Teacher's Federal Credit Union, the campaign has raised $342,000, or 68 percent of its target amount.

Information on the campaign was recently mailed to all employees' homes. If you did not receive information, or would like more information, please call Doug Bennett at Ext. 25126.

Donors who give $100, $250, $500 or $1,000 will be recognized on a book shelf donor recognition plaque in the entrance area of the OCC Library. Gifts at higher levels will be recognized by plaques throughout the new Library.

The Library will open on Thursday, Jan. 3. The formal dedication ceremony is set for Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 10 a.m.
