ACC Library Services in the Community

Has an ACC Faculty Librarian Helped You Lately?

In addition to supporting our college, ACC faculty librarians also serve the community at large. Here are just a few ways that ACC faculty librarians give back:

  • Texas Book Festival Volunteers
  • ESL tutors at Austin Public Library
  • Habitat for Humanity volunteers
  • Mobile Loaves and Fishes volunteers
  • Genealogical transcription volunteers
  • Reading volunteers at area elementary schools
  • Service as President of the Association of College and Research Libraries
  • Numerous services as Chairs, or committee members in Texas Library Association, American Library Association, Association of College and Research Libraries, Medical Library Association, and the Texas Community College Teaching Association
  • Providing books to Hurricane Katrina affected libraries
  • Providing books to prison libraries

Texas Book Festival Activity:

ACC Faculty Librarians are regular volunteers at the Texas Book Festival. One of our very own played a very BIG part!

ACC ACC Head Librarian Pam Spooner as Babar enjoy the book festival.

Read Campaign:

In collaboration with the American Library Association's national READ campaign, ACC Library Services promotes literacy in our own community with posters featuring ACC celebrities.
