Welcome back!

Welcome to the new academic year at White Mountains Community College!

What's new?

Thanks to the Student Senate, we now have three shiny new computers with Windows 7. They've got Microsoft Office 2007, Open Office 3.2, dvd/cd readers/burners, as well as some specialty software, and are very fast! Look for the lilac desktop images for these new additions.

Our Friday hours have expanded! We are opening at 7 a.m. on Fridays now (and are still staying open until 7 p.m).

EBSCOhost has changed its look, just a bit. If you want help with this fantastic database, please see a member of the library staff.

Don't be strangers -- please ask for assistance any time--in person, via email ( or by phone: 603-752-1113 x 3087.
