In Fall 2017, Community College of Philadelphia embarked on the planning process for the NEW Library and Learning Commons. Established by College leadership and the primary stakeholders, the vision for the space is a welcoming educational environment celebrating the diversity of age, cultures and points of view of the College community. The space will have clear wayfinding while taking advantage of great natural light. There will be places for quiet study and for collaboration while securing the book collection. An emphasis is on offering an array of group study/classroom spaces, technology and flexibility. Lastly, it is important that the space exude beauty with artwork, finishes and furniture.
