WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MAY 24 - 30, 2023 UCW 17 Albert Einstein said "e only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library." e Paul H. ompson Library at Fayetteville Technical Community College is not your grandmother's library. e era of the old library with moldy books and shushing librarians no longer exists. In its place, FTCC has established a new, dynamic facility that certainly does have many books, but also provides new resources to help students meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Would you like to build a proto- type of your newest invention or create your artistic masterpiece? If so, you need to visit the makerspace on the first floor of the library. ere are 3D printers, computers, graphic design tools, and skilled librarians who will help you turn your dreams into reality. Currently enrolled FTCC students can create projects in the library makerspace for free. Do you need a meeting place? FTCC's library has a variety of study spaces on the first and sec- ond floors equipped with white boards, computers, large monitors, comfortable chairs, and friendly li- brarians who are eager to help you. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the library. Do you need somewhere to relax on campus? If so, you need to come to the library. You can relax in a plush chair, charge your phone, watch a video, listen to mu- sic, and chat with your friends. You can even challenge a stranger to a game of oversized checkers. Do you need to borrow a human skeleton? If so, you need to visit the second floor of the library where we have replica, anatomically cor- rect, human skeletons. Just tell one of our librarians that you need to borrow a skeleton, and they will loan you a skeleton free to use while in the library. Do you need answers right now, in the privacy of your own home? If so, you need to visit FTCC's Paul H. ompson library website at www.faytechcc.edu/campus-life/ library/. e website provides access to thousands of eBooks, newspapers, academic jour- nals, popular magazines and study guides. Many of these resources are not available to the general public. You can even chat with a live librarian every day from 8 a.m. to midnight. Do you need a working light- saber? at is too bad. Lightsabers are not real, and you already know that, BUT if anyone ever builds a real lightsaber, it will probably be someone who spent a great deal of time in a library, perhaps even the Paul H. ompson Library at FTCC. We invite you to visit the Paul H. ompson library at the Fayetteville campus of FTCC at 2201 Hull Road or take a virtual tour at www.faytechcc.edu/cam- pus-life/library/. FTCC is currently registering stu- dents for summer and fall classes, so it's the perfect time to visit the library and discover how the library can enhance your learning experiences at FTCC. Thompson Library is a dynamic resource for FTCC students by CHRISTOPHER THRASHER e Paul H. ompson Library on the FTCC main campus offers students access to workspace, meet- ing rooms, 3D printers, and much more.
