Library Community Services
As a public state institution, the NECC libraries provide a variety of services to patrons in our local communities.
Grant Resource Center
Located in the Lawrence Campus Library in the lower level of the Louise Haffner Fournier Education Center at 78 Amesbury Street, the Grant Resource Center is open to the public and provides access to the Foundation Directory Online, with information on over 140,000 grantmakers.
The Linda Hummel-Shea Art Space
Named for former Library Director Linda Hummel-Shea, the Art Space on the first floor of the Bentley Library in Haverhill is a dedicated art gallery and meeting space, used for student, faculty and community art shows during the academic year. The gallery is a vehicle to bring contemporary artists and their work to the college campus so that students and the greater college community can have access to a wide range of art and design. ArtSpace also allows students the exposure and experience of mounting their own shows and exhibiting their work.
NOBLE Digital Heritage Project
A project of the North of Boston Library Exchange, Inc. (NOBLE) and member libraries, the Digital Heritage Project is a collection of resources documenting the rich social and cultural history of our member communities. Northern Essex Community College participates in this effort by providing digital access to items from the library’s archives, documenting NECC’s role in the community for over 50 years. https://digitalheritage.noblenet.org/necc/
