The Gwinnett Technical College Library (Lawrenceville campus) recently reopened its doors after a long-planned renovation! Students are enjoying our modern and bright library spaces. Popular features include six large study rooms, each filled with natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms are equipped with computer access via wall-mounted monitors. Students may reserve rooms through a streamlined reservation process that utilizes QR codes.
The west-facing side of the library is a beautiful, open space featuring a long wall of full height windows, comfortable sofas, and live plants, all of which create a collaborative and inviting atmosphere. This area serves as a perfect backdrop for programs such as Poetry Night. The library hosts this annual event, allowing students, staff, and faculty to gather to recite original and favorite poems, celebrating literature and creativity.
In addition, the library introduced RFID self-check technology with the installation of two self-check kiosks. Items are tagged to protect the collection, and security gates also provide much needed statistics for foot traffic and in-house visits. Library staff conduct research instruction workshops for students in the on-site computer lab, equipped for online instruction presentations. From English, culinary, or veterinary science courses, staff provide instruction to help students develop essential research skills.
Gwinnett Tech’s newly renovated library serves as a space for inquiry, exploration, discovery, learning, and growth that fosters student success in school, work, and life. Library staff members are proud to serve a diverse student population and provide our students with a space that promotes inclusion, collaboration, and positivity. If you are in the Lawrenceville area, please feel free to stop in for a visit!
The ambiance is simple yet tasteful and the study rooms are quite conducive to learning. The new library would not be great without the library team, who are always ready to assist me with my research.Emerly Abbot-Daniel (Surgical Technology student)
The success of one’s academic performance is predicated on the learning environment and the support one receives. The Gwinnett Technical College library has provided me with a space that meets both of these needs.
