Library introduces new entertainment wing on the third floor

The Library has consolidated many of its entertainment-related functions and equipment on the third floor, creating a dedicated entertainment wing.

A collaboration with the Music Department has created Room 304, a space for students to experiment and create music with friends. The room has a Mac loaded with software for music, a Roland keyboard and an electronic drum kit. Inputs for two other instruments and a mixer with headphones has created a space for making music without making too much noise. 

The Gaming Room will now be in Room 306, and the Oculus Room, with new Touch controllers and games, in Room 303. 

These rooms provide a great place to relax and unwind. Check in at the third floor desk to gain access.

Black History Month to explore ‘Black Migrations’

LCC will celebrate Black History Month 2019 with more than a dozen events throughout the spring semester.
 
This year’s theme, “Black Migrations,” emphasizes the movement of people of African descent to new destinations and subsequently new social realities. While inclusive of earlier centuries, this theme focuses especially on the 20th century through today.
 
African-Americans’ migrations during the early 20th century resulted in a more diverse and stratified interracial and intra-racial urban population 

Exploration of the century’s later decades brings attention to topics like the burgeoning African and Caribbean populations in the U.S., northern African-Americans’ return to the South, racial suburbanization, inner-city hyperghettoization, health and environment, civil rights and protest activism, electoral politics, mass incarceration, and dynamic cultural production.
 
LCC’s calendar of events kicks off with the annual Black History Month jazz concert and continues through April. Events include:

  • Jazz concert celebrating John Coltrane: 4-7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, in Dart Auditorium
  • Annual Community Health Fair: 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the Gannon Highway
  • Black Business Expo: 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, in the Gannon Highway
  • Cornel West Presentation: 10:10 a.m.-noon Thursday, Feb. 14, on the third floor of the Library
  • Kisma Jordan recital: Noon Tuesday, Feb. 19, in Dart Auditorium
  • Malcolm X Symposium: 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Michigan Room
  • Learning Circle Film Series Discussion of the movie “The Kalief Browder Story”: 12:10-2 p.m. Feb. 4 and 25, March 6 and 18, and April 3 and 17, in Gannon Building, Room 2214
