Collins Library & Learning Center is home to an impressive collection of resources that help teach students modern information literacy.

Dunn's library is staffed with a full-time trained librarian who provides help to classes and individual students as needed.

The library also serves as a comfortable and peaceful environment for students to engage in extracurricular reading, chess, or quiet group study, day or night. Students can also sign up for individual research appointments to work one-on-one with the Director of Library Services for a full class period.

The library is open every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
