The Fullerton College Library/LRC is a new facility designed to replace the college’s former library and to develop a comprehensive Learning Resource Center. The facility is designed as a focal centerpiece to the historic 1930’s Work Projects Administration (WPA) campus and is a tribute to the Hispano Mooresque style of the original campus architecture. The library portion of the facility fronts the main campus quad and includes a  2-story grand lobby connecting the central computer commons to the quieter reading areas and study rooms upstairs.

The Learning Resource Center is an interdisciplinary study and tutorial center. Multiple entries support this facility to establish expanded access to portions of the facility. Flexibility is built into the facility to allow for future changes in the delivery of instruction and technology.
