Shatford Library Student Association

Hello! We are proud to announce that there is a new club here at Pasadena City College... the Shatford Library Student Association! Here is a little run-down of our club:

The purpose of the club shall be to foster interest in libraries, information science, and information technologies as viable career choices. Working as a liaison between the Shatford Library and the students at Pasadena City College, the club hopes to raise awareness of Shatford library services and promote the role of libraries in society. Members will be encouraged to take part in various activities such as networking with professionals, professional workshops, visits to various libraries, and guest speakers.

So, basically, it is a club to promote our college's library and to have fun by taking part in library and school related events.
