We’ve set up a puzzle table in the library. Don’t have time to do the whole thing? No problem! Come in and add a few pieces. We’ll all work together to finish. Once a puzzle is complete, we’ll switch it out for another.
Taking a short break to play a game or work on a puzzle helps decrease stress and can improve critical thinking. It might be just what you need before you dive back in to study for a final or finish that research project!
The Clermont College Library hosted a special event, For the Love of the Library, on Thursday, February 9th. The purpose of this event was to highlight the 1st floor renovations made possible by our donors and share plans for student-centered improvements to our library’s 2nd floor.
Thanks to all who celebrated with us from our community, UC’s Clifton campus, UC Libraries, and UC Clermont.
Elizabeth Terry’s ENGL 1001 students completed writing projects examining local cities, villages, and places during the fall 2016 term. The projects examined questions relating to a place’s relative growth or isolation.
Students spent a great deal of time using the local history collections of the Clermont College Library, the Clermont County Public Library, and local historical societies. They also snapped photos of their research subjects — now on display in the Peters-Jones hallway outside of the library. The photographs represent an additional investigative method, capturing indefinable beauty in landmarks we often pass without a second thought.

With help from generous donors, we’ve worked hard during the winter break to make the library a better place for you to study, hang out, and get assistance with research. The big changes include an upgraded service point and new front doors. We’ve also relocated some furniture and the printer-scanner combo in order to serve you better. Stay tuned for more improvements coming soon this term, including electric access for more first floor study tables and for the circular couches in the library atrium.
Let me know what you think of all of the changes!
Best wishes for a productive and happy spring semester,
Clermont College Library Director
We our students, staff, and faculty! We’re also so incredibly appreciative of our amazing donors — your generosity has paved the way for some impactful improvements to the library this year. You can check out our renewed first floor in January 2017.
In our 2014 and 2015 Clermont College Library student surveys, an overwhelming number of students asked for the ability to photocopy documents using their Bearcat card. And now our new 3-in-1 machine will do just that, in addition to producing high-quality document scans and printing in both color and black and white.
Keep the feedback coming! We want to be your best resource for student success.
The Clermont College Library is proud to present a trio of student artists and a trio of their works during the summer term — Samantha Padgett’s soulful still lifes in pencil, Ellen Taylor’s bold depictions of fire, water, earth, and spirit and Natalia Martinez’s manga-inspired meditations on love and death.
The exhibit will run through August. Thanks to Professors Kelly Frigard and Anthony Wolking for coordinating another fantastic collection of student art in our library.
Clermont College is hosting a special event and an online auction to raise money for our 21st Century Library Transformation, student scholarships, and a new fine arts classroom. Be a part of the action and plan to attend and/or bid in the auction. The event includes dinner by the bite, an open bar, live music, and a special address from President Ono.
On a personal note, I’m beyond thrilled to have our library among the year’s fundraising priorities for Clermont College. Strong attendance at this event will have a huge impact on our ability to improve our library. Even if you cannot attend, please help us spread the word.
Try your luck, buy a duck — it’s just a buck. We’ll draw the winning duck from a kiddie pool on March 31 at Clermont College’s Spring Fling event.
This year, you can come to the library to buy your duck OR enter online for a chance to win an Asus Transformer Book 2-in-1 laptop generously donated by Fifth Third Bank. Each duck purchased = 1 chance to win. All proceeds from this fundraiser benefit your 21st Century Library Transformation.
We’re happy to report that our new library website is up and running! This fresh new look allows users to have a more seamless experience transitioning to other UC college libraries, as well as the benefit of using a site tested and designed with library users in mind.
