The Ocean at the End of the Lane

A man returns to his boyhood home and remembers things--terrible and wonderful things, that he'd forgotten about a girl, her mother and grandmother, and their home near a pond--no, an ocean, at the end of the lane...

Neil Gaiman's newest--highly acclaimed--adult fairy tale, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, is the next book for the WMCC lunchtime book discussion group.  We'll meet at noon on Thursday, September 25, in Room 122.  Copies of the book and audio are available in the library.  Bring your lunch!

Academic Skills Workshops @ the Library

Do you know the difference between MLA and APA?

Do you get overwhelmed when doing research?

Do you want to Google like a pro?

Start your semester off right, and brush up on the skills that will help you succeed in your classes.

The WMCC Library is offering a series of FREE drop in workshops to help you with your research skills:

  • September 9:  Formatting and Citing using MLA
  • September 10:  Formatting and Citing using APA
  • September 16:  Library Databases

All workshops will be in the Library's Study Room 1, at noon (bring your lunch).  Stop in for a few minutes to ask a question or stay for 30 minutes to practice.   Can't make it during those times?  Stop by any time to talk with library staff about scheduling a meeting to go over your questions.
