ENGL 847 QEH East Palo Alto Academy - Anderson: Welcome

Rene Anderson

Welcome to your local college library!

College libraries help students succeed in college.  Librarians help with research for assignments. Library assistants check out textbooks, calculators, and other equipment. 

The Cañada College Library is one of 35 libraries in the Peninsula Library System. A library card from one PLS library gives you access to books and materials at three community colleges, Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College, and 32 public library branches from Daly City and South San Francisco to Half Moon Bay and Redwood City.

That means you can check out a book at Cañada College Library and return it to East Palo Alto Library!
